DATE: Tuesday, 31st October 2006
TIME: 1.15 - 3.05pm (NB actual talk is 1 hour)
VENUE: 8W 2.5, University of Bath

SPEAKER: Yvonne Aburrow

TITLE: 'Gender, Sexuality and Contemporary Paganisms'
SUMMARY: The paper looks at how issues around gender and sexuality are viewed in contemporary Paganisms. The feminist and gay liberation movements have had significant interaction with contemporary Paganisms, and the image of the witch has been reclaimed by both feminists and Pagans who want to explore the aspects of gender identity that were previously marginalised and suppressed.

How did it go?

Yvonne said...

It went really well, thanks! 15 people came (which is a lot, apparently), and quite a few stayed for the discussion afterwards, which lasted 45 minutes. The text of the talk is online if you want to read it.
