The Very Queer Appeal of Japan: Sexuality, Identity and Belonging in Postwar Expatriate Literary Cultures

Wednesday 28 January 2015, 5.30PM

Speaker(s): Dr Mark Pendleton, University of Sheffield

Mark Pendleton is a social and cultural historian whose research is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from history, cultural studies, memory studies, literature, geography and critical theory. While his core interest lies in the history of twentieth century Japan, he also maintains active research interests in the histories of gender and sexuality, transnational social movement histories, the politics of violence and the relationship between memory and history.

Refreshments will be available before and after the seminar in the History Department Reception.
