      LGBTQ+ Europe: History, Culture and Community

      This course explores LGBTQ+ life in Europe from both a historical and contemporary viewpoint, with particular reference to London and Amsterda.  Topics covered on the course include: LGBTQ+ pride and protest; collecting and recording LGBTQ+ lives; issues affecting LGBTQ+ people in Europe; LGBTQ+ people and the law; LGBTQ+ people and milestones from the 18th century to today; representations of LGBTQ+ people in the media; LGBTQ+ places and spaces. The topics will be approached through formal lectures, film screenings and discussions, debate and analysis of primary and secondary sources. The course involves visits to a variety of cultural sites and firsthand experience of working with internationally important LGBTQ + archive collections. It is led by an expert in LGBTQ+ heritage.
