Workshop on late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century cultures of sexual knowledge

In 2017 we were delighted to be joined by:

Dr Amber K. Regis (English, Sheffield) who gave us the paper “‘The editor has reason to believe…’: un/finishing the Memoirs of John Addington Symonds”. 

Amber spoke on her new critical edition of John Addington Symonds’ memoirs. 

Professor Joy Dixon (History, British Columbia) spoke to us on ‘”The Gift of Sex”: Sexology, Social Purity, and the Production of Normalcy”. 

Joy is the author of Divine Feminine: Theosophy and Feminism in England

This workshop was organised in conjunction with the Sexual Knowledge unit.
