Going to Strasbourg: oral history accounts of sexual orientation discrimination and the European Court of Human Rights

18:15-20:15 | P/T/006, Physics and Exhibition Centre, University of York, YO10 5DD

In this talk, Paul Johnson (Professor of Sociology, University of York) draws upon oral history interviews conducted with LGBT people who have challenged discrimination in the UK by making applications to the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). Understanding the role of the ECtHR in safeguarding LGBT rights is vital at a time when the Conservative Party and other politicians advocate the UK weakening its ties with Strasbourg.

Treehouse, Berrick Saul Building, Uni Of York
18:15-19:45 | The Treehouse, Berrick Saul Building, University of York, YO10 5DD

Eleanor Formby of Sheffield Hallam University will draw on her research to discuss what LGBT community means to people. This will include examining: ‘ownership’ of community; ‘difference’ and diversity; relationships to, within and beyond physical space; imagined communities and belongings; the importance of ‘ritual’ events and symbols, such as Pride and the rainbow flag. Within this, the impact of history and current social contexts will be explored. Overall, the talk will highlight what connects ‘people like us’ across time and space.

Turcaret
Thursday 9 - Saturday 11 March 2017
Scenic Stage Theatre, University Of York
They say money doesn’t buy happiness. This isn’t the case for Monsieur Turcaret in Lesage’s 1709 comedy. In times of economic hardship, this man is playing a risky game at the whole of France’s expense. At the height of his financial power, he’s also looking to satisfy his appetite for love – but he’s not alone in this regard. Throw in an unchivalrous chevalier and several scheming servants out for their own gain, and you’ve got a play that stands poised to deliver a memorable evening of entertainment.

The University of York’s final year Writing, Directing and Performance students invite you to Turcaret, Alain-Rene Lesage’s vibrant and playful attack on those who exploit money and the trust of others for vast personal gain. Using John Norman’s 1989 translation as the foundation, this new production brings Lesage’s sharp satire sweeping into the modern era. www.tftvpresents.co.uk
