I am a PhD. student in the University of British Columbia’s School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies, the Archivist-Historian for the Consensual Non-Monogamies taskforce of the American Psychological Association. I also run the queer history project 50 Years On, Many Years Past and contribute to Homosaurus an international linked data vocabulary for LGBTQ terms.
In the past, I’ve worked at the Kinsey Institute Library & Special Collections where I revised Sexual Nomenclature, A Thesaurus, and as a research/project assistant with Dr. Marika Cifor and Dr. Robert D. Montoya on a project called Classifying, Documenting, and Preserving Human Sexuality at the Kinsey Institute. For a time, I was also the host of The AskHistorians Podcast.
I am currently especially interested in histories of sexuality, censorship, and queer theory, and in applying these histories to knowledge organization, radical/queer classification, and archives.Download Resume (pdf)
