London Metropolitan Archives
The OHS’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) special interest group is pleased to be programming the 15th annual LGBTQ+ History and Archives conference hosted at London Metropolitan Archives. The conference, called Talking Back!, will take place on Saturday December 2 from 10 am to 5 pm.
The day will explore powerful histories expressed through oral recordings, ways of collecting and sharing in heritage and community settings and how marginalised histories can be brought into sharp focus through effective oral history practice. The price of the conference is £15 (£10 concessions), including lunch. Please click here to book.
The first twelve months of the LGBTQ group have been busy, with the SIG growing steadily both in terms of researchers and activity. February’s LGBTQ History Month saw many group members touring the country to display their research, host talks and workshops, and generally spread the word about the current landscape of LGBTQ oral history in the UK.
That landscape, incidentally, is currently being mapped by the group, and participation would be much appreciated to make this resource as comprehensive as possible. You can also keep up to date with the SIG via Facebook and Twitter.
