Contested Curriculum: The Surprisingly Long Fight to Bring LGBTQ History to K-12 Classrooms

For the first time, WGS Professor Don Romesburg shares research from his book-in-progress about the history of K-12 LGBTQ history education in the U.S. He reveals how this struggle began in the 1970s, had a burst of unrealized promise and frustration in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and is finally being realized in the 21st century. He will also discuss the current backlash to the progress that's been made, and the road ahead.
