Holden Lecture 2020: Bulgarian Tendencies: Stories from the Queer Library of Jonathan Cutbill

Due to issues arising from coronavirus (COVID-19), the University of London has taken the decision to halt all events of 50 or more attendees with effect from Monday 16 March until 30 April. As a result of this, we will be postponing the 2020 Holden Lecture, which was due to take place on 23 March, until future notice.

We apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment caused.

We hope to reschedule the lecture when there is a decrease in the risks associated with the coronavirus. Please feel free to contact friendsofshl@london.ac.uk with any questions.

The collection which will help fill fundamental gaps in LGBT history has been packed up and is in transit from Cutbill's Shrewsbury home to Senate House Library where they will be catalogued and added to our collections this month.
