On the basis of a selection of country-house case studies, Michael Hall asks whether current approaches in queer history and contemporary understanding of LGBTQI+ identities offer new ways of analysing the way that the National Trust relates not only to ideas of family and inheritance but also to broader concepts of heritage.

Michael is Editor of The Burlington Magazine. A former Architectural Editor of Country Life and Editor of Apollo, he is writing a queer history of the National Trust, to be published by Bloomsbury in 2025.

This lecture was part of the ‘Changing Perspectives’ series in early 2023
