Livestream issues

We’ve had a number of reports regarding issues with the livestream from Spotlight on: Genderqueer.

  • Lack of audio: unfortunately we are continuing to have issues recording sound in the venue and are still looking into this. It’s worth checking back occasionally to see if it’s working – we are going to keep trying to fix it! If we’re sure it’s working we will announce this through Twitter and a post on this website.
  • Trouble connecting: the livestream is working – we recommend checking you have the latest version of quicktime and/or windows media player and/or real alternative. For Linux users, it is also possible to open rtsp://193.60.198.137/conf_h263_g711u_384000_148717125573_AP364748 in VLC or similar.

Please be assured that the event is being filmed so videos should be available in the future!

‘Genderqueer’ – an innovative research event

Spotlight on: Genderqueer will be an open, friendly and participatory event intended to represent a diverse range of research addressing themes that speak to, relate to, or interact with the concept of ‘genderqueer’ whilst  breaking down boundaries between researchers and community members. It will build upon the successes of the 2010 Spotlight on: Asexuality event.

As well as bringing together researchers in the UK, we aim to use video conferencing software to allow researchers from around the world to present their work.The event will take place at the University of Warwick on Monday 29th April.

We realise that this isn’t an easy place to get to, particularly on a Monday afternoon, even for those who live in the UK. We also realise that there are lots of people who will be interested around the world. We’re therefore doing our best to make the event as remotely accessible as we possibly can.

At the very least this will involve recording the sessions as podcasts and posting them online. However we’re aiming to (a) film the sessions and put them on YouTube and (b) live stream the event and allow people to ask questions and participate remotely.

More information on the event will follow soon. Watch this space!
