Malet Place | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

A discussion around gender identity focusing on depictions of the pharaohs Hatshepshut and Akhenaten in the ancient world and early twentieth-century attitudes to their allegedly ‘transgressive’ identities. We will also consider how these pharaohs might allow us to reflect on ideas about sexuality and gender identification in the present.

Part of LGBTQQIAA History Month.

With the support of Wellcome Trust-funded project “Sexual Science Beyond the Medical” (University of Exeter) and Camden LGBT Forum.

Doors open 6pm, event starts at 6.30pm.
