Women, Gender & Sexuality in the Archive is an afternoon workshop designed to bring together archivists, librarians and custodians of archives with those who would like to explore opportunities for working collaboratively with archives on women, gender and sexuality located in Leeds.

Speakers from archives on the University of Leeds campus and across the city will talk about their collections on women, gender and sexuality; arts organizations and voluntary sector groups will discuss the opportunities and challenges of their own archives; academics will showcase their projects on creating new archives.

Speakers include Kitty Ross (Leeds City Museums & Galleries), Nicola Kenmir (West Yorkshire Archive Service), Katy Thornton (Special Collections), Gill Park (Pavilion), Sue Barnes (Skippko), Sally Deane (Women’s Aid), Jalna Hanmer (Feminist Archive North), and Fiona Philip (Pararchive Project).
