HistSex: Making History in 2020: Contemporary Issues in Historical Practice.

Abstract

Throughout human history—if undergraduates and the History Channel are to be believed—there have been dramatic events which create a distinct before and after; the world is utterly changed. Of course, the work of historians is to place all sorts of cautions, explanations, and contextualizations on these moments, but they remain iconic in the mind of the public. One of these moments took place a half-century ago at the Stonewall Inn in New York City, and has become the stand-in byword for LGBTQ+ history—despite queer history being far older than 1969. After briefly sketching out this history, I will introduce 50 Years On, Many Years Past: Nonfictions.
