Psychological 'treatments' for homosexuality and gender non-conformity: a roundtable discussion on histories and legacies

 

Kate Davison (History, Goldsmiths), Tommy Dickinson (Mental Health Nursing, King’s College London), Katherine Hubbard (Sociology, Surrey), and Helen Spandler (Social Work, Care and Community, University of Central Lancashire) will be joining us for an interdisciplinary discussion on the histories of psychological ‘treatments’ for homosexuality and gender non-conformity.

This event is organised by the Birmingham Research Institute for History and Cultures (BRIHC), in collaboration with the Centre for Modern British Studies (MBS), and is in conversation with the on-going work of Historical Research on Sexuality Project in the School of Psychology.
