Queering The Groove - An On-line Conference

Thursday, 21 October 2021, 1.30pm

Queering The Groove: An on-line conference celebrating the intersection of pop music and LGBTI identity.
With a diverse range of papers, encompassing everything from Dolly Parton, Little Richard and dance music, to less perceptibly equated, yet equally queer explorations, the DCU Queering The Groove seminar serves to consolidate pop’s place as a soundtrack to our lives, and to celebrate its role as an enduring and potently queer cultural force.

Through a mixture of academic presentations, interviews, panel discussions and curated talks, familiar tropes such as the ‘gay icon’ and the ‘gay anthem’, as well as explorations of various aspects of queer fandom will be explored.

The multi-disciplinary, two-day event event (Oct 21/22), is organised under the umbrella of EROSS (Expressions: Research, Orientations Sexuality Studies), a network of academic and creative explorations in sexualities, sexual orientations and gender identities carried out at Dublin City University by staff/postgraduate researchers, and will take place on-line.
