Speaker: Professor Sally Hines, University of Sheffield Chair: Professor Sarah Franklin, University of Cambridge

Drawing on her on-going research on gender diversity, recognition and social change, Professor Hines will consider the gains and the losses in understandings and practices of gender fluidity in the contemporary UK.

Speaking to the recent tide of anti-transgender activism in the UK within some sections of feminism and aligned conservative movements, she will critically unpack the current wave of so-called ‘culture wars’. She will locate these UK-specific developments as part of a wider pushback against the rights of gender and sexual minorities at European and International levels and argue for the urgent need to develop a collective intersectional politics centred on social justice and a politics of difference.
