BiReCon 2012: Bisexuality and mental health

Last weekend I co-organised a conference on bisexuality and mental health. It was even harder work than organising conferences usually is but, thanks to the wonders of the internet and to one of the plenary speakers, Dr Meg Barker, who is brilliant at mobilising non-traditional academic media, writing it up here is extremely easy:

You can see the call for papers here.

You can see the programme and abstracts here.

You can listen to Meg Barker’s plenary speech (and my introduction to the conference) while watching her Prezi presentation here.

There will  be a write-up for BCN which I may post here too. But, in summary, it went really well. The plenary speakers were all great and beautifully covered three distinct areas but with clear links and wider relevancies. The individual papers also went very well and there was some really good discussion in the final plenary.

If you are interested in the context of this event, you can also find out about BiReCon and its parent organisation BiUK
