Registration for the "Bodies of Knowledge: Sexuality in the Archives" conference is now open.  


This international conference, hosted by Centre for the History of European Discourses at the University of Queensland, will be held from April 26-28 2007 at the Queensland State Library, Brisbane.  


The turn to new theories and practices of the archive in critical theory, cultural studies, queer theory, philosophy, sociology and associated disciplines has had important repercussions for scholars working on histories and philosophies of the body.  This conference will examine the impact of innovative recent work on archives and archival practice for sexuality studies, gender studies and queer/GLBT studies.  The conference aims to interrogate how knowledge about the body is collected and held, as well as how it is produced.  Drawing together scholars from a broad range of inter-disciplinary fields, it will highlight scholarship about bodies, genders and sexuality that is empirically grounded, document based, historically inflected, theoretically informed and self-conscious of its relationship to archival practice.


Keynote speakers include:

Rosemarie Garland-Thomson

Catherine Waldby

Anjali Arondekar

Elizabeth Kerekere

Susan Stryker
