Our second event of the Edinburgh Science Festival is:  Dr Kate Stephenson - Copulation, Contraception and Controversy: Sex and the National Trust for Scotland  When  you think of the National Trust for Scotland. it's probable that it  conjures images of castles, battlefields and maybe a good pot of tea,  but sex? Not so much. Well, think again; central-Edinburgh property,  Gladstone's Land, has just launched a new tour called Intimate Lives: A  History of Sex and Desire in Edinburgh's Old Town. Looking at subjects  from privacy to preferred position and from lust to lubrication the tour  draws on original historical sources from the 17th to 19th centuries.  This talk will give some context to the tour launch as well as providing  a sneak preview into some of the content. It might even bust a few  myths along the way.

Dr Kate Stephenson is a cultural historian  with diverse research interests within the fields of dress and social  history. She has a particular specialism in the history of school  uniform and her book on the subject, A Cultural History of School  Uniform was published in January 2021. Her recent work has focused on  two disparate subjects, the history of fancy dress and the history of  sex and intimacy in Old Town Edinburgh. Coming from a background in  academia, Kate has worked in the museum sector for the last five years.
