Queer Frontiers: Queering the digital
Lady Hale Moot Court, 8-10 Berkeley Square, Bristol BS8 1HH
This event is targeted towards academics and stakeholders invested in the relationship between digital spaces and queer identities. Over the course of a day, we will hold several conversations focused on different aspects of the digital world to think about how they relate to queer identities.
The workshop is intended to be a way for academics and stakeholders to consider: what could make digital technology and digital spaces better for queer people? What could a research or intervention agenda look like in this area?

This event has been generously funded by the GW4. This means we will be able to offer travel bursaries if you are travelling from a GW4 institution or if you are a stakeholder traveling from Bath, Cardiff, or Exeter. Academics will be contacted if this is the case - if you are a local stakeholder that wants your travel covered, please do e-mail email@example.com who can help sort that out for you.
