Monday 23rd February, 2015: 7.30pm, Lindisfarne Centre, St Aidan’s College, Durham, DH1 3LJ

All welcome.

Following on from the success of last month’s lecture, Durham Pride is pleased to announce a public talk delivered by Prof. Chris Ashford of Northumbria University.

Chris has published widely on the area of law and sexuality and legal education. A queer theorist; his research explores the intersection of law, sexuality and technology and has focused upon the phenomena of public sex, male for male sex work and more recently, barebacking. He has advised LGBT community and health groups, the NHS, Police and UK Parliament. Pink News – the most read British gay news service – named Chris as 26th in the top 50 Twitter users who influenced LGBT lives the most in 2011. His legal education research has explored and documented the rise of the apprenticeship route to qualification, and the impact upon Law Schools, whilst his pedagogic research has focused upon the use of technology and media.

Chris is currently Professor of Law and Society at Northumbria University, where he convenes the Gender Sexuality and Law Research Interest Group. He is also on the editorial board of the recently founded journal “Porn Studies”.

The talk will last approximately 50 minutes with a Q&A to close.
