Queer connections - old 'stuff', new stories?

Monday 27 February, 14.30

Marking LGBT History Month 2023, Pitt Rivers staff will share research stories from Out in Oxford and Beyond the Binary, initiatives developed with community partners, researchers and activists to challenge the types of stories told in Pitt Rivers Museum displays. Hear how recent projects have developed new ways to communicate and celebrate the diversity of ways people have experienced and expressed sexuality and gender - both now and throughout global history.

This talk is the second in our new series of Research Spotlights.



On the last Monday of the month join Pitt Rivers Museum researchers in the galleries for interactive talks bringing cutting-edge, cross-disciplinary research to life. In 2023, connect with objects and images from the collections and get to know the work of visual and evolutionary anthropologists, curatorial activists, health-care researchers and many other specialists who are accessing the museum to take their research in new directions and to connect with new people.  

Where: Meet underneath the Star House Crest Pole (Haida Totem Pole) in the Museum’s Court for talks to start at 14.30.  

Who: All are welcome to attend, from families to museum aficionados!  

Accessibility: Talks will be wheelchair accessible, may involve material that can be handled and we can provide follow-up info over email for visitors.
