Abstract

Department

Description

The Black Queer Studies Collection is a virtual collection designated through catalog notes meant to increase the discoverability of UT libraries holdings in the area of African and African Diasporic Lesbian Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Studies. The collection was created in 2009 by former Women’s and Gender Studies Librarians Kristen Hogan and Lindsay Shell in collaboration with Dr. Matt Richardson, faculty member in African and African Diaspora Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, and English. The groundbreaking project and collection is designed to address discoverability issues posed by the limitations of Library of Congress subject headings. The exhibition highlights the range of the materials in the collection, which includes biography and memoir, critical and scholarly texts, fine art, music, poetry, theater, science fiction, and film all centering black queer experience.
