Closeted/Out within the Quadrangles: a brief history of LGBTQ lifetime during the University of Chicago

In 2011, the guts for the research of Gender and Sexuality launched Closeted/Out in the Quadrangles, a task documenting lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, transgendered, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) life in the University of Chicago through the very early 20th century through the current day. In Spring 2015, the task culminated in a event into the Special Collections Research Center at Regenstein Library and a permanent dental history archive that could be accessed by generations to come of scientists and community people.

The project has contributed to building community and expertise around the history of sexuality across indian girls and sex disciplines by providing undergraduate and graduate students at the University space for research and intergenerational mentorship in addition to producing new scholarship. 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 co-coordinator and display curator taught a program on international sexualities (GNSE 22804) that coincided with all the event in Special Collections.
