Past matters. The origins of sex: a history of the first sexual revolution
Thursday, 22 March 2012 from 18:00 to 20:00 (GMT)
Bristol, United Kingdom
This First Annual Penguin History Lecture is a joint venture with Penguin Press to bring the very best historians to a Bristol audience. The talk will be followed by a drinks reception.
Speaker Dr Faramerz Dabhoiwala is a Senior Fellow in History at Exeter College, University of Oxford. His exciting new book explains how and why the Enlightenment ushered in a modern culture of sex. It helped create a new model of Western civilization, whose principles of privacy, equality, and freedom of the individual remain distinctive to this day.
Venue: M Shed, Princes Wharf, Wapping Road, Bristol, BS1 4RN
Admission free, but booking required in advance.
When & Where
Centre for Public Engagement
The CPE supports and promotes public engagement with research and teaching across the University. This involves running programmes of public talks and festivals, and helping academics to engage with the public by working with them to attract funding, providing appropriate training and facilitating collaboration with partners outside the University. We share ideas about public engagement with other universities through the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement.
