Description

In this talk, Dr Eileen Pollard discusses Sarah Waters' most recent novel to date, The Paying Guests (2014) and illustrates how Waters uses the lens of history to explore the complexities and contradictions of sexuality and gender identity today. Waters is a novelist who has embraced the label 'lesbian writer' and used it to reach a wide-ranging audience and encourage them to think about ideas around masculinity, femininity and the social construction thereof.
