How do I use this calendar?

You can click on an event to display further information about it.

The toolbar above the calendar has buttons to view different events. Use the left and right arrow icons to view events in the past and future. The button inbetween returns you to today's view. The button to the right of this shows a mini-calendar to let you quickly jump to any date.

The dropdown box on the right allows you to see a different view of the calendar, such as an agenda or a termly view.

If this calendar has tags, you can use the labelled checkboxes at the top of the page to select just the tags you wish to view, and then click "Show selected". The calendar will be redisplayed with just the events related to these tags, making it easier to find what you're looking for.

'Who's making the rules?' Emerging trans voices in comics

This event is set up as a reading group led by Dr Ash Kayte Stokoe from the University of Birmingham. We will be exploring trans representations in contemporary comics, questioning their role in sustaining or disrupting the idea of the good trans object, one that 'fold[s] transness into the visual economy of existing normative media', 'minimizing the threat that transgender embodiment poses to the dominant models of gender and sex upon which realist, mediated worlds rely' (Cáel M. Keegan, 2022). We will be looking at specific comics examples. Links to extracts to these will be circulated upon expression of interest. For that reason, we kindly ask you to please send us an email to sign up to the event

The event is open to students, PGRs and staff of all levels. No prior knowledge of comic books or trans studies is required, just curiosity and enthusiasm!

This event aims to be an inclusive space and no transphobic, homophobic, misogynistic, ableist, racist or xenophobic discussions will be tolerated.
