Teaching A Queer History of the United States by Michael Bronski

If you are registered for the 3-part book club, you do not need to register for this event.

The experiences of LGBTQIA people (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, androgynous) is a history that is often omitted. According to the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network, only 1 in 5 LGBTQIA students reports that they were taught positive representations of non-heterosexual people, history, or events in their classes. How do we teach about those who have shaped LGBTQIA identity in the modern world and the legacy of this history?

Come hear activist, author, and Harvard Professor Michael Bronski discuss his book A Queer History of the United States and what it means for us to teach the history of the LGBTQIA community.

Michael Bronski is an award winning author who has written extensively on LGBTQIA issues for four decades. He is Professor of the Practice in the Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality at Harvard University and a senior lecturer in Women’s and Gender Studies and in Jewish Studies at Dartmouth College.
