This forum will be an informal conversation about the Queer Mississippi oral history project and how theatre can be used to creatively present research to broader audiences. Amy McDowell and Peter Wood will discuss their collaboration to meld theatre, sociology, and LGBTQ history in a classroom setting and talk about how students in one graduate seminar are using the Queer Mississippi archive to author an original script for theatrical performances. Graduate students from the class may also be joining.
