No Day But Today: United States Queer History

HIST 323
Spring 2023
Section: 01  
Course Cluster and Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory Certificate

Queer history, as a subfield, has flourished in the more than five decades since the Stonewall Riots. What began as an attempt by activists involved in the liberation era to reclaim the lost and erased historical memory for queer people has developed into a vibrant field of interdisciplinary scholarly interrogation. This seminar will introduce students to the historiographic contours of queer history and help them develop independent research projects. We will take advantage of the extensive queer periodicals collection assembled by Wesleyan University's Department of Special Collections and University Archives.
