The modern gay rights movement can be traced back to WWI. Upon returning home, many soldiers saw their participation in the war as an opportunity to gain recognition and equity under the law. Join Dr. Caroline Radesky, visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Iowa to learn about how the rhetoric and the goals of the Movement evolved in direct response to WWI and shifting ideas tied to citizenship. Lecture will be followed by a Q&A and links to learning resources for both onsite and online use. A professional development certificate will be provided.
