Dr Adam Jowett will be presenting the following talk, ‘From the history of LGBTQ psychology to the psychology of LGBTQ history’.

‘To mark LGBT history month and the 20th anniversary year of the BPS Psychology of Sexualities Section (founded as the Lesbian and Gay Psychology Section), this talk will outline the recent history of LGBTQ psychology in the UK. The talk will also consider the potential of focusing on LGBTQ history as a topic of social psychological research. How do we construct narratives of LGBTQ history? What do such narratives tell us about our society today and how are they mobilised to serve certain political ends?’
