Inaugural Professorial Lecture – Professor Chris Brickell

‘Sherlock Holmes and the History of Sexuality’

About Professor Brickell’s research 

Chris is a scholar of intimate life and social change. A substantial amount of his work explores the emergence of gay life in New Zealand since the nineteenth century, especially the ways sexuality has been given shape across time and place.

His award-winning book Mates and Lovers: A History of Gay New Zealand was made into a stage play. The photographic focus of much of his publishing has pushed boundaries in the writing of New Zealand history, including in his most recent book Teenagers: The Rise of Youth Culture in New Zealand, which also examines the relationships between culture, social structures, and selfhood.

He has published a considerable number of book chapters and journal articles and is a winner of the Rowheath Trust Award and Carl Smith Medal for his research.

Chris is currently Head of the Sociology, Gender Studies and Criminology programme.
