2012 logoThe American Historical Association’s 2012 annual meeting will feature a diverse array of sessions on LGBTQ history, sponsored by the AHA Program Committee and the Committee on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender History, an AHA affiliate.

Offerings include discussions of the challenges and opportunities of LGBTQ oral history and public history, a curator-led tour of the Chicago History Museum’s new exhibit on LGBTQ life in the city, and sessions discussing queer history in the context of sexuality, gender, medicine, urban history, race, and military history.

Be sure to attend the open forum sponsored by the AHA LGBTQ Historians Task Force on Friday evening. Task force members will discuss the preliminary results of their survey of LGBTQ historians and historians who study LGBTQ topics and solicit feedback on plans for the final report they will submit to the AHA Council in June 2012.
