NTC: LGBT History is US History: Ideas of integrating LGBT History into your curriculum.

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

9:30 am-12:30 pm

Jennifer Brier, University of Illinois at Chicago
Newberry Teachers' Consortium

This seminar will explore how teachers can incorporate Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) History into their US History courses. We will consider a range of examples that suggest that LGBT people have a history and that their history has been central to the development of political, social and cultural change. While most of the discussion will center on the 20th century, particularly before the 1969 Stonewall Riot, we will attend to some mid-to-late 19th century examples of same-sex desire and gender non-conformity to explore how and why gender and sexuality have a history that will have meaning for all students.
