The speaker in 2013 is Professor George Chauncey (Yale University), one of the foremost historians of modern homosexuality. His work on Gay New York (1890-1940) (1994) has been seminal in opening up the whole subject of modern homosexuality, providing historians with the skills needed to investigate further in case studies of urban homosexuality.

This is a rare chance to hear Professor Chauncey, one of the world’s leading gender historians.

The title of his talk is Gay Culture in Postwar New York: Community Creation and Conflict.

This annual lecture has been devised specifically to explore the history of the gay/lesbian past but also to mirror the University’s ongoing commitment to diversity and equality.

Listen to George Chauncey speaking about the history of Gay New York.
