From medieval back streets to Wild West saloons, discover the history of sex for sale
Join Kate Lister as she discusses her latest book and introduces us to a lively cast of complex and entertaining characters from throughout history. Kate brings to life these enthralling characters and invites us to reconsider everything we think we know about the world’s oldest profession.
Dr Kate Lister is a senior lecturer in English and History at Leeds Trinity University. Her primary research interest is the history of sexuality, with a particular focus on the figure of the sex worker. She is the author of A Curious History of Sex and Harlots, Whores, and Hackabouts: A History of Sex for Sale. She spends far too much time on Twitter where she tweets about her research as @WhoresofYore.
