LGBT lives: The biographies and life course of sexual/gender dissidents

The organisers would like to invite papers on theory, methods and applied
research, including work in progress, of relevance to the seminar theme as
well as papers detailing development projects, campaigns and other aspects
of practice relating to the LGBT communities. Presentations which address the Scottish context in some respect are particularly welcome. This is the last seminar in the series and will include input from the Scottish Government regarding their recent response to the Hearts and Minds Agenda Group recommendations.

Themes may include:
• Innovative approaches to researching everyday living and experiences
• Intimate and family relationships and networks
• The relation of academia, policy and practice to the day-to-day
  issues faced by LGBT groups and individuals
• Formal and informal networks of support, help and care within
  LGBT communities

Also including:

LGBT Lives Symposium on Ageing
Raising the Profile of LGBT Ageing and Later Life

The organisers would like to invite papers for a parallel session devoted to exploring issues of LGBT ageing and later life. The session will include up to 10 short (ten minutes) papers that directly address LGBT ageing and later life. Contributors will be asked to provide written versions of their papers and these will be compiled in the form of a briefing to be circulated to relevant stakeholders in Scotland.

Papers may take any form including:
• Case-studies from practice or research
• ‘Think-pieces’ on how LGBT ageing is understood and responded to
• Summaries of research
• Reviews of the literature
• Methods used to investigate LGBT ageing and the challenges faced
