LGBTQ+ Resistance Throughout U.S. History Online
LGBTQ+ resistance has a long history in the United States. Dr. Caroline Radesky, Visiting Assistant Professor at The University of Iowa, will discuss how LGBTQ+ people have pushed back against cultural oppression in the U.S. from 1600 to the 20th century. She will look at lesser-known people and movements by examining everyday acts of resistance and queer and trans historical worldmaking in the past and think through how this history informs our present.
Dr. Caroline Radesky is a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of History and the Department of Gender, Women's, and Sexuality Studies. She recently received the Organization of American Historian's John D'Emilio Award in LGBTQ History for her book manuscript, Feeling Historical: Same-Sex Desire, Race, and the Creation of Historical Imaginaries, 1880-1920.
This program is presented in partnership with the Davenport Civil Rights Commission.
