HYBRID: The Queer Medieval with Nicola Griffith

Event Description

For Pride month, join celebrated historical fiction author Nicola Griffith for a conversation about queer representation in medieval history and fiction. The acclaimed author of Hild, Spear, and Menewood will explore how fiction can create belonging and challenge narratives about who belongs in history.

How are current ideas of queer identity similar or different to those in the Middle Ages, and those represented in historical fiction? How can fiction help us re-see the past, and thus re-envision our future?

Griffith is the author of nine novels. In addition to her fiction and nonfiction (New York Times, Guardian, Nature, New Scientist), she is the founder and co-host, with Alice Wong, of #CripLit.

Griffith will be in conversation with María Bullón-Fernández, a professor of English at Seattle University who specializes in Medieval English literature. This event will take place in-person at Town Hall Seattle and be livestreamed. Tickets start at $5; free for those under 22.
