Introducing the LGBTQ History Lunch Panel!

The eleventh Loyola University Chicago History Graduate Student Association Conference lunch panel, “Changing Strategies for Collecting, Sharing, and (Re)telling LGBTQ Histories,” focuses on how methods of collecting, writing, and sharing LGBTQ histories changed over the past thirty years.

Panelists include:

Jill Austin, Curator, Chicago History Museum

Dr. John D’ Emilio, Professor of History and Women and Gender Studies Emeritus, UIC

Symone L. Simmons, Program Coordinator, UIC Gender & Sexuality Center

Jakob VanLammeren, Archivist & Collections Librarian, Leather Archives & Museum

Dr. Michelle Wright, Professor of African American Studies, Northwestern University

The lunch panel opens with each panelist commenting on how methods of collecting, writing, and sharing LGBTQ histories changed over the past thirty years. Then, the floor opens for a question and answer session about the topics at hand. Changes and challenges still face activists, archivists, historians, and students who work with LGBTQ community members and research LGBTQ histories. While the conversation at the conference takes place at lunch, these issues exist beyond the conference walls. The conversation does not stop here, it begins here.

We look forward to your contemplations and engagement at the lunch panel, and can’t wait to see you on November, 15! Stay tuned for more information!
