LGBTQ+ Oral History Project Launch

October 22, 2021, 1:30 pm Trotter Multicultural Center and Zoom

Join us for the launch of the The University of Michigan LGBTQ+ Oral History Project (OHP). We will be hosting a panel consisting of OHP project team members, interviewees, and experienced oral historians. OHP was initiated by the Spectrum Center and other institutional stakeholders in the summer of 2019 and has collected 27 interviews so far. Led by undergraduate students under the guidance of the Spectrum Center and its partners, this three-year project focuses on helping current students connect to LGBTQ+ stories and experiences of the past, as well as provide opportunities for scholarly research. By diversifying the University of Michigan archives with experiences not often represented in library records or academia, we have the opportunity to connect intergenerational communities and elevate the value of storytelling in education.

This panel will take place in a hybrid modality on October 22nd from 1:30-3:00 EST. If you plan to attend the in-person event at the Trotter Multicultural Center, please indicate this below. The virtual option for this event will be hosted on Zoom.
