Writers on Campus is a monthly series of conversations, panels, and events celebrating writers at La Trobe.
The series is a partnership program presented by the Department of Languages & Cultures and the University Library and will provide a space for student writers of all levels to get together, support, and broaden their learning.
Become part of a community of La Trobe writers. Join the discussion, build your skills and networks, engage with industry and community and celebrate writers from a range of disciplines.
Each month will feature new writers and presenters.
Writing Queer Lives
The first event in our series is ‘Writing Queer Lives’ – a conversation between the 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. Writing Queer Lives 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.
