11: Queering Kilmainham Gaol; a talk by Brian Crowley

A fascinating talk by Brian Crowley, focusing on the queer history of Kilmainham Gaol and exploring the criminalisation of homosexuality in the 19th and early twentieth century. It focuses in particular on the prison’s role in the biggest gay scandal in Ireland in the 19th century, the Dublin Castle Scandal of 1884 which saw a fascinating intersection of politics and the judicial system.
