About

The Queer London Research Forum (QLRF), based at the University of Westminster, was established in September 2013. Its aim is to facilitate interdisciplinary discussion on various aspects of queer London, c. 1850-present. By bringing together academics, practitioners, students and those with an interest in queer issues more generally, we hope to encourage dialogue and debate about the range of London’s queer lives and experiences.

The co-directors of the Queer London Research Forum are Simon Avery and Katherine M. Graham.

Simon Avery is Reader in Modern Literature and Culture and Co-Director of the Queer London Research Forum at the University of Westminster. His research interests include the relationships between nineteenth-century literature, politics and gender; historiography and queer histories; the 1890s; and the contemporary historical novel. Publications include Elizabeth Barrett Browning (Northcote House, 2011), Poems of Mary Coleridge (Shearsman, 2010), and Thomas Hardy: A Reader’s Guide (Palgrave, 2009). He is currently writing a book on the spaces of modernity.

Katherine M. Graham is a Visiting Lecturer in English Literature and Co-Director of the Queer London Research Forum at the University of Westminster. Her research interests include revenge, ideas around the queer, and late-Elizabethan and Jacobean revenge tragedy. She is currently working on a project considering contemporary re-imaginings of Thomas Middleton and William Rowley’s The Changeling. Katherine also works as a writer and has had work performed in London, New York and Los Angeles. In 2011 Katherine was a Visiting Scholar at the Centre for the Study of Gender and Sexuality at New York University.
