In this lunchtime talk, Dr. Claire Hayward will discuss queer public history as part of the Goldsmiths Queer History speaker series.
This talk will explore some of the ways that LGBTQ histories have been marked and commemorated in public spaces. By looking at examples in the UK, Germany and the Netherlands, it will highlight some of the ways that LGBTQ communities and individuals have claimed spaces for the celebration and commemoration of LGBTQ people and events, in both the past and present.
Claire Hayward is an educator and historian whose work explores diverse public histories and heritage. Her PhD focused on queer public histories in Britain, and she has also researched and written about women's public history. She was a researcher for the Historic England project 'Pride of Place: England's LGBTQ Heritage' and is currently Lecturer in History at Farnborough College of Technology.
