LGBTQ+ Public History, American Social History Project interview
by Steven G. Fullwood
“Making Queer History Public” is a new podcast series by the American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning that explores LGBTQ+ public history. The podcast will focus on archives, museums, public art, and education initiatives to investigate how queer and trans histories are being told, how LGBTQ+ people are pushing public history narratives forward, and where you can go to learn more about queer and trans-led projects and experiences.
Two months ago, Steven had the pleasure of talking with Dr. Anne Val, director of the Center for Media and Learning/American Social History Project (ASHP) and history professor at The Graduate Center.
Steven was interviewed about his work as the founder and project director of the In the Life Archive at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, New York Public Library. Making Queer History Project dropped a teaser recently for their upcoming fall season featuring yours truly. Have a listen!
