Queer Pasts Nourish Queer Futures
Printed media has always been queer: queer in the 16th-century sense of strange--a strange, aberrent technology--a way of creating and circulating knowledge that worked counter to the norms of its time, and produced further arenas for non-normitive, heretical, viral and downright dangerous ideas to circulate. This lecture will explore the queerness of printed media as it dates back to the early modern period, joining the distant past with the more recent 20th- and 21st-century explosion in media related to the LGBTQIA+ liberation movement.

Brooke Sylvia Palmieri is a writer, printer, and bookseller. After completing a PhD in History at University College London in 2017—“Compelling Reading: The Circulation of Quaker Texts, 1650-1700”—Brooke founded Camp Books in 2018, a travelling rare bookshop and imprint focusing on LGBTQIA+ history and its allied social movements.
