How has our understanding of bisexuality changed over time & what are the practical implications of this today? On a more fundamental level how should we even define bisexuality?
This fast-paced panel discussion will examine research on attraction to multiple genders from various perspectives - including history, psychology, sociology, and film studies. Join us for this fascinating and turbulent dip into the world of bisexual research.
Meet the panel:
This panel is hosted by Dr Julia Shaw, a research associate in psychology at University College London and masters student in queer history at Goldsmiths. She is also the founder of the Bisexual Research Group (http://www.bisexualresearch.com).

* Sam Lawton is a social researcher who studies sexuality and stigma of Bi+ men, currently engaged as a doctoral candidate in sociology at the University of Glasgow.
