Closeted/Out into the Quadrangles: a brief history of LGBTQ lifetime in the University of Chicago

In 2011, the middle for the research of Gender and Sexuality launched Closeted/Out in the Quadrangles, a task documenting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) life during the University of Chicago through the early 20th century through the day that is present. In Spring 2015, the task culminated within an event within the Special Collections Research Center at Regenstein Library and a permanent dental history archive that may be accessed by generations to come of scientists and community people.

The project has contributed to building community and expertise around the history of sexuality across disciplines by providing undergraduate and graduate students at the University space for research and intergenerational mentorship in addition to producing new scholarship. 继续阅读Closeted/Out into the Quadrangles: a brief history of LGBTQ lifetime in the University of Chicago
