Sex and Politics

Dr Alana Harris (Kings College, UK) will deliver a public lecture in relation to her own work: “Religion, Morality and the State: homosexuality and Catholic Britain 1954-1971” with Commissioner for Gender and Sexuality, Ro Allen, to respond in the context of our local engagement on delegalizing conversion therapy and the political interventions that are presently underway here in Australia.
The lecture will explore a spectrum of Catholic reactions to homosexuality in Britain from 1954 to 1971, and especially the jurisprudential and theological attempts of Norman St John-Stevas to forge an updated but nevertheless traditional Catholic position on homosexuality that fused natural law teaching with the insights of biblical exegesis, modern medicine and psychology.
