Closeted/Out into the Quadrangles: a brief history of LGBTQ lifestyle during the University of Chicago

In 2011, the guts for the analysis of Gender and Sexuality launched Closeted/Out in the Quadrangles, a project documenting lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, transgendered, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) life during the University of Chicago through the very very early twentieth century through the day that is present. In Spring 2015, the task culminated in an event when you look at 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.

Along with creating brand new scholarship, the task has added to building community and expertise round the reputation for sex across disciplines by giving undergraduate and graduate pupils in the University room for research and intergenerational mentorship. The project has offered a yearly undergraduate course, training students in the practice of oral history and archival research in gender and sexuality and exploring LGBTQ history over the past four years. In Spring 2015, Lauren Stokes, task exhibit and co-coordinator curator taught a training course on international sexualities (GNSE 22804) that coincided with all the event in Special Collections.
