Genre, sexualité et clandestinité

From the 18th century to today

This talk will present an overview of how sexual identities and genders deemed abnormal or illicit have been represented over the years, from the 18th century to the present. Since they were unable to manifest themselves publicly, they often had to do so in clandestine ways, sometimes under cover of darkness or by resorting to various strategies. Professor Contogouris will also touch on such historic events as the Stonewall riots, marking their 50th anniversary this year.


Ersy Contogouris, Professor of Art History, specializing in gender history and queer studies, Université de Montréal
