This session traces the rich history of LGBTQIA+ communities at Duke and in Durham. From the formation of the Duke Gay Alliance in 1972 to the ongoing work of Southerners on New Ground (SONG), queer people on and off campus have created socially, spiritually, and politically active communities for many years.
In this session, learners will explore these communities through their newsletters, magazines, and other publications.
During this session, you will:
• Practice textual and visual analysis using magazines, newspapers, and other periodicals.
• Explore the history and culture of LGBTQIA+ people at Duke as well as in and around Durham.
• Analyze the ways that LGBTQIA+ communities used newspapers, magazines, and other periodicals to communicate, advocate, and celebrate.
