The University of Chicago’s Special Collections Research Center holds onto everything from old house records to original manuscripts and rare books. Check out what some student employees say are their favorite items.

(#tbt Shorey House edition)

Hooray for Special Collections! We’re helping build collections in gender and sexuality history, but we also rely on the University Archives to tell our stories.

Countdown to the Closeted/Out exhibition in their gallery space? 7 months!

We’ve given the College Catalog a visual update that should be prettier to look at and easier to use. Scope out all our programs of study and next years classes!

What looks good to you, readers?

We’re excited to review the Gender & Sexuality Studies courses and requirements! (Too soon?)

Anonymous asked:

I don't really know who to ask about this, but in the South the term "queer" is a pejorative term. Here people seem to use it all the time, and I read somewhere that the term was reclaimed by the academic community in the 1980s/1990s (I now cannot remember where I read that). I am still highly uncomfortable using it though. Should I just get over it, or are there other terms that are PC? Is gay okay? LGBTQ?

fyuchicago answered:

Great question! Gonna open this up for discussion. Can any LGBTQ readers help?

DESIRE FOR HISTORY





BY ELIZABETH STATION | THE CORE | WINTER 2013




A COLLEGE CLASS UNCOVERS THE HISTORY OF GAY AND LESBIAN STUDENT LIFE.


If the title of the course wasn’t bold enough to draw students’ attention, its ambitions were. Offered this past spring quarter, Queer on the Quads: Uncovering LGBTQ History at the University of Chicago aimed—according to the syllabus—to introduce undergraduates “to the practice, theory, and interpretation of oral history as a primary source in studying the history of gender and sexuality in the 20th century US.” Meeting twice a week in the library’s Special Collections Research Center, the class discussed readings and explored sources in the University archives. Instructor Monica Mercado, AM’06, a doctoral candidate in history, also prepared students to conduct oral-history interviews with alumni and staff. It was the first step toward building an archive to document the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) experience at the University.

COMING VERY SOON!AUTHOR EDITION ofSTONE BUTCH BLUES
on lesliefeinberg.net:           FREE-READ/DOWNLOAD           AT-COST 12 point print edition
The novel should be available in print within weeks—we’re trying for my 65th birthday on Sept. 1, or as soon after as humanly possible.
I am so ill that gossip can travel around the world, while I can’t answer without health setbacks. Witness an immediate example: There’s an attempt using social media to try to crowd-source an attack on my author rights to my own novel, Stone Butch Blues.
Talk of a “casting call” for a movie of Stone Butch Blues is meant to bury the fact that I own all rights to my own novel. 
I have not and will not assign any rights to any adaptations or any movie.
The author edition of SBBs will explain why in more detail in the back matter.
I will post here when the novel is up on lesliefeinberg.net and available in print.

Last month, we were fortunate enough to visit the Barnard Zine Library in New York - an amazing place run by lovely people

That’s my zine library!

One day I will come visit this zine library, and there will be much rejoicing

One day we will come too (did you know UChicago Special Collections is developing a zine collection?)
