New Exhibit Coming this Fall!

Coded language and oblique references pose challenges to researchers of queer history. However, library collections contain rich stories of individuals who transgressed sexual and gender norms across centuries, as well as documentation of the people and systems against which they transgressed. Based around four different approaches to research, the Library’s next exhibit, Queering the Collection: LGBTQ+ History ca. 1600-1970 will showcase letters, documents, and stories from individuals ranging from Sir Lady Java to Alfred Kinsey, Oscar Wilde to Learned Hand.
