Queer loss, queer Classics

This is a recording of the lecture from the 2019 OutStories Bristol AGM. The speaker is Professor Jennifer Ingleheart, Professor of Latin at Durham University. The title of the talk is, "Queer loss, queer Classics: A. E. Housman’s ‘lost country’". For more information about the talk see the OutStories Bristol website. A copy of the handout that accompanied the talk can be donloaded here.

In addition to being part of the AGM, the lecture was given to celebrate the birth in 1840 of John Addington Symonds, Bristol-born writer, art historian and pioneer of homosexual rights. Mr. Symonds birthday is celebrated annually by the Institute of Greece, Rome, and the Classical Tradition at the University of Bristol who also provided the venue and refreshments. Our thanks to both Professor Ingleheart for a fascinating lecture, and to the Institute for the arrangements.
