Join Daniel Marshall for a talk about the ways we try to connect to the queer past.
Drawing on one example from the ‘Friendship as a Way of Life’ exhibition — Macon Reed’s Eulogy for the Dyke Bar 2016 — and material from the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives’ collection and work, this talk will reflect on practices of re-enacting the queer past as efforts to build intergenerational kinship.

Daniel's publications include the co-edited collections Secret Histories of Queer Melbourne (ALGA, 2011; reprinted 2018), 2 volumes on “Queering Archives” for Radical History Review (Duke UP, 2014; 2015), and Youth, Sexuality and Sexual Citizenship (Routledge, 2018).
