damned_colonial: The lamp outside 221B Baker St (221b)
[personal profile] damned_colonial posting in [community profile] queering_holmes
Over on [community profile] podficmeta they did something for 3W4DW that I think might work well here. One of the moderators, [personal profile] zvi, posted asking people to suggest things they'd like to have discussed on the community. So, I'm going to do the same, lifting most of the phrasing from her post ;)

Please comment to this post if there's a discussion you'd like to see happen on this community. If you have a full fledged entry, you can tell me that you'd like to do the posting. If you just have an idea you'd be okay with me riffing on, say that and I will.

I'll then post top-level posts prompting discussion on the subjects suggested.

One thing I'd like to see: discussion of queer women's experience in the era, particularly as it differed (or didn't) from men's. With book recs.

Just in case it doesn't go without saying that I approve this suggestion: I really approve this suggestion.

This is a topic on which, at the very least, I can waffle about the historiographical problems of uncovering queer women's experience (and what, contextually, might thusly be categorised) at that period, with reading recs (such as they are - much less than there is for queer men in C19th).

I suspected something of the sort. I think there'd be multiple hugely interested people, though!

Am so very for this topic and for reading recs on the offchance I've missed something... actually I rather fancy I've read more that falls a bit earlier or a bit later, hm.
