LGBTQ History

Queer History at the 2016 Annual Meeting

By Nicholas L. Syrett

Unlike some fields of history, those interested in the LGBTQ past do not have a regular annual or biannual meeting. Because of this, the Committee on LGBT History—the AHA affiliate organization for queer historians and those who study LGBT history—has been embedding a mini-conference into each annual meeting for several years. The 2016 meeting in Atlanta is no exception. The CLGBTH is sponsoring or endorsing a session in each and every time slot from Thursday through Sunday, January 7–10.
