The ‘What is & How to Do LGBT History’ conference was established in 2012 to create a platform for research. Our aim is to highlight current work on LGBTQI identities and showcase this research.
Previous conferences have attracted professional scholars at the cutting edge of research including: Alison Oram (Leeds Beckett), Charles Upchurch (Florida State University), Matt Cook (Birkbeck College, University of London) Susan Stryker (University of Arizona) and Stephen Whittle (Manchester Metropolitan University). International representation is important to us, and the conference has been enhanced by delegates and presenters from France, Germany, Finland, Japan, Norway, Spain, Sweden and Poland.
