Toilets, Gender and Queer Crip Politics

Speaker: Dr. Jen Slater, Sheffield Hallam University

Organiser: Dr KATIE DHINGRA/

For the last few years a group of researchers, activists, artists and students working under the name 'Around the Toilet' have been asking what makes a safe and accessible toilet space. Beginning by exploring the experiences of queer, trans and disabled people, the project has since broadened to consider toilets in relation to parenting, travelling, cleaning and labour, faith and religion, schools and work. In this talk I will discuss some of the trials and tribulations of toilet politics and activism, particularly in relation to gender and disability. Far from mundane, we will show the toilet to be a highly political space of exclusion and belonging, often reaffirming our place within society. 

All welcome
