Columbia’s LGBTQ Faculty Diversity Initiative will be collaborating with CCHOR and INCITE to produce an oral history of LGBTQ+ people affiliated with Columbia University. These interviews will weave the narrators’ biographies, experiences, and analyses into a deep analytical history of LGBTQ+ people at Columbia University. The pilot phase of this project will contain five narrators and will be tied into a course that culminates in a public exhibition of LGBTQ+ history. The research produced through this project will be archived in the Columbia University Libraries, and the audio and video will be made publicly available through an INCITE/CCOHR-affiliated website.
