This conference will bring together scholars and curators from the disciplines of Literature, Cultural History, Art and Architectural History, and Heritage to investigate LGBTQ perspectives on the “long” eighteenth century.

This conference will bring together scholars and curators from the disciplines of Literature, Cultural History, Art and Architectural History, and Heritage to investigate LGBTQ perspectives on the “long” eighteenth century, and features keynotes from Walpole’s biographer, George Haggerty, and Matthew Reeve, who has written extensively on Gothic architecture, sexuality & aesthetics.

Hosted in partnership with Horace Walpole’s Gothic villa at Strawberry Hill in west London, the conference will complement a major exhibition taking place October 2018-February 2019, ‘The Lost Treasures of Strawberry Hill’, which will bring together, for the first time since 1842, masterpieces from Walpole’s collection. There will be an opportunity to visit the exhibition during the conference.
