Sex: A Victorian mystery
Thursday 24 September 2009, 19.00-20.30
The Victorian era was full of contradictions about sex and
sexual health. Join us for an evening of titillation as we consider
the attitudes of the time as well the mistruths that history
creates. We'll bring together visual, historical and literary
perspectives to explore this complicated story.
This event is now fully booked.
