Gender, Sexuality, and Museums, new volume

 

When it appeared in 2010, Gender, Sexuality and Museums offered scholars, practitioners, and students key articles, essays and case studies on those subjects. As the first reader to focus on LGBT issues and museums, and the first text in nearly 15 years to collect articles which focus on women and museums, it offered new and classic investigations about gender and sexuality – both practical and theoretical – many of which broke new ground and helped spur new practices and perspectives. The editors propose a second volume of essays on this topic, to appear for the tenth anniversary of Gender, Sexualities, and Museums.

During the 2017-2018 academic year, William & Mary commemorates 50 years of African Americans in Residence. As a result, The Lemon Project: A Journey of Reconciliation and the 50-Year Commemoration of African Americans in Residence Committee are teaming up for “Desegregating Higher Education in Virginia: William and Mary in Historical Context.” As the first three women to live on campus at William & Mary were moving in, other colleges and universities in Virginia and elsewhere were experiencing similar change. What were their stories? What was their process? How did they keep moving forward?
