Join Gerard Koskovich and the Ivy+ LGBTQ alumni community in Paris in a discussion of the state of LGBTQ public history in the United States and France. His talk will focus on the history of efforts to establish queer archival institutions, taking a comparative approach to the endeavors in which he has been an essential contributor. With roles as diverse as an advisor to Yale University to exhibition curator at the GLBT History Museum, Koskovich brings a unique perspective on the complexities involved in how universities, historical societies, and political bodies alike endeavor tell an accurate, meaningful version of queer history.

A cocktail reception will follow the talk.

Gerard Koskovich
 is a San Francisco–based historian, curator, and rare book dealer. For nearly four decades, he has been actively involved in the movement to create community-based LGBTQ archives on both sides of the Atlantic. He is notably a founding member of the 
GLBT Historical Societyan internationally-recognized archive and museum based in San Francisco. Since the early 1980s, he has followed efforts to create LGBTQ archives in Paris. As a book dealer, he has assisted major university libraries in the United States with building LGBTQ-studies holdings.
