Professor Alex Sharpe will present a Public Lecture on David Bowie in the Westminster Theatre on 15th March 2017 at 6.30 pm. The lecture will be many things, including an audio-visual feast. In true Bowie fashion, what it will not be is dull.

Monsters, because the monster is the outsider template par excellence. Hopeful, because monsters are quintessentially hopeful. Bowie, because he is the monster writ large. Of all the figures within popular culture, few embody the monster quite like David Bowie. Through Bowie, the lecture will think through, and render accessible, some key categorical distinctions which the monster brings to crisis. In particular, and through Bowie, we will journey through the territory of sex, gender and sexuality; human/animal hybridity, and the sacred and the profane. So roll up for the mother of monsters.
 
The event is free. All welcome.
