In the first of a new events series, Writers on Campus, we celebrate Pride Week with ‘Writing Queer Lives’, a conversation between author and activist Dennis Altman, and historian and memoirist Yves Rees.
Dennis Altman is the author of 15 books including Homosexual: Oppression and Liberation and Defying gravity: a political life, a La Trobe legend for many decades, acclaimed sexuality theorist, and now the Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow. Yves Rees is a lecturer in History, co-host of the podcast Archive Fever, award-winning essayist, and author of the memoir All About Yves. The event will be hosted by author and creative writing lecturer Kelly Gardiner.
Don’t miss what promises to be a very special conversation celebrating queer lives and queer writing.
A partnership program presented by La Trobe School of Humanities & Social Sciences and La Trobe University Library.
