Queer(y)ing the “Modern Homosexual”

Jeffrey Weeks

Jeffrey Weeks is emeritus professor of sociology at London South Bank University. This article is based on the Maxwell Cumming Distinguished Lecture delivered at the British Queer History Conference, McGill University, Montreal, 14–16 October 2010. I would like to thank warmly the Distinguished Lectureship Committee and the organizers of the conference for inviting me to deliver the lecture, and to convey my thanks to all those who commented on the paper on that occasion, and in the subsequent review process.
