Speaker(s): Martha Acklesberg, Richard Cleminson, Terence Kissack
Chair: Clare Hemmings

Recorded on 4 December 2014 at New Theatre, East Building

The panel brings together historians and political theorists of anarchism and sexuality to explore the importance of this relationship to how we conceive of sexual politics today. The panel will explore the history of sexual freedom as part of anarchist revolutionary practice, providing an alternative history to one focused exclusively on sexual rights.

Martha Acklesberg is a leading authority on women and gender in the anarchist movement in Spain during the Civil War.

Richard Cleminson is reader in Hispanic Studies at the University of Leeds. He lectures on Spanish history, gender studies and the history of sexuality. He has written about anarchism and homosexuality, the history of "hermaphroditism" and the history of eugenics.

Terence Kissack is a leading authority on the history of homosexuality in the anarchist movement in the US.

Clare Hemmings is Professor of Feminist Theory at LSE.

The Gender Institute (@lsegendertweet) was established in 1993 to address the major intellectual challenges posed by contemporary changes in gender relations. This remains a central aim of the Institute today, which is the largest research and teaching unit of its kind in Europe.
