Queer Displacements: Sexuality, Migration & Exile
14-15 November 2019
The Australian National University Canberra Australia
Questions of sexuality and refugee or migration status remain on the margins of queer and refugee movements, policy and support services.
The first of its kind in Australia, this conference aims to bring together academics, practitioners and LGBTIQ+ people seeking asylum and refugees to discuss pertinent issues of queer forced displacement and foster dialogue between official and unofficial groups invested in research and practice for coordinated solutions and better support of affected populations.
Confirmed keynote speakers include:
- Professor Eithne Luibheid
