The University of Manchester  Sexuality Summer School  Performing Queerness  17­21 May 2009     

The Centre for the Study of Sexuality and Culture (CSSC) in the School of Arts, Histories and Cultures (SAHC) at the University of Manchester is holding its second Sexuality Summer School in May 2009. This Summer School is an annual event intended for postgraduates and researchers working in the broadly defined area of sexuality studies. The Summer School addresses current debates within queer studies, emphasising in particular its implication for the interdisciplinary study of culture. It offers an opportunity for students to discuss queer debates with researchers in the CSSC as well as international scholars brought in for the event.
The Summer School is organised in conjunction with the Queer Up North International Arts Festival.
Applications welcome from Doctoral and Masters’ level students from any university, as well as third-year undergraduates interested in taking the MA in Gender, Sexuality and Culture at The University of Manchester.
