Public Speaking and Media

Recent Media

On February 3 my blog post on SFU’s Sweater Day attracted a lot of media attention. It was reprinted in Inside Education, and print stories appeared on CBC‘s webpage, The IndependentBuzzFeed, Huffington Post, JezebelThe Province, Global News, USAToday and SFU’s student newspaper The Peak. I was interviewed on CBC radio’s “On the Coast”:

and CFAX.

Upcoming talks:

In February I’ll be giving the 2016 Southampton Stonewall Lecture at the University of Southampton in the UK, titled “Lesbian Life Stories: Stuck in the Past? On the Archives of Lesbian Oral Testimonies (ALOT).” I will also be sharing aspects of my research on the history of same-sex marriage at Oxford University in a talk titled “Freak Wedding! A Long History of Homonormativity.”

In April I’ll be offering the keynote talk at the 2016 Foothills Colloquium in Undergraduate History.
