    Gerard Koskovich

    Co-hosted by the Harvard and Yale Clubs of France



    Come 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 collection consultant for Yale University library 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 will follow the event.
