Queer Studies Reading group
This reading group, which supplements the more formal events organized by Queer@King's, allows graduate students and staff to meet across departmental boundaries to get together and discuss texts old and new in an unintimidating setting. We typically meet about once a month at lunchtime. Attendees are actively encouraged to suggest material for discussion - to do so, or if you are wish to attend a session and obtain readings, please contact Ben Nichols
Our next meeting:
