About

Interest in queer histories and the lives of LGBTQ people in the past crosses departments and disciplinary boundaries at Goldsmiths. Exciting and dynamic research is being undertaken not only in the Department of History but across the College.

Goldsmiths Queer History brings together students and staff at Goldsmiths and across the University of London. But we also engage with a wider public of community members, activists and heritage professionals who are engaged with questions of the queer past and who promote the value of sexual and gender diversity today. The study of queer history is as much about the present as the past.

Our work includes provision of the first MA in Queer History, public history events, workshops, and the creation of the Goldsmiths Archive of Queer Life Histories.
