Southampton Stonewall Lecture 2014: Creating Our History, Celebrating Our Present: On the Entanglements of Queer Memory and History

Part of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History Month

The Southampton Stonewall Lecture speaker  in 2014 is Professor Laura Doan from the University of Manchester. Doan

LGBT History Month seeks to claim our history, celebrate our past and create our future – a project not wholly dissimilar from all history-making practices organized around modern categories of identity. In this  lecture I want to think about the workings of memory and history in relation to homosexuality.  By scrutinizing the political impulses that produce gay icons such as Alan Turing, I am interested in figuring out what LGBT and queer history is good for.
