The Sexuality Summer School is coordinated by the Centre for the Study of Sexuality and Culture (CSSC) with sponsorship this year from Screen, Manchester Pride, the Cornerhouse, Contact Theatre, artsmethods@manchester, and the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Manchester.

The Summer School is an annual event intended for postgraduates and researchers working in the broadly defined area of sexuality studies. The Summer School addresses current debates within queer studies, emphasising in particular its implication for the interdisciplinary study of culture. It offers an opportunity for students to discuss queer debates with researchers in the CSSC as well as international scholars brought in for the event. Applications welcome from Doctoral and Masters' level students from any university.

Registration for the 2013 Summer School: Queer Imaginaries will go live at on March 1st 2013.
