The Mapping LGBTQ St. Louis Project is happy to welcome three new undergraduate researchers to our team – Kristi Hagen, Molly Brodsky, and Jennifer Chen.
Our semester’s work began September 23 with an orientation session at Olin Library. Ian Darnell presented on the overall story of St. Louis LGBTQ history, and Andrea Friedman and Miranda Rectenwald discussed the research procedures being implemented for the project. Then on Saturday morning Kristi, Molly, and Jennifer met with Ian for a tour of the Central West End and got an on the ground look at significant locations in LGBTQ St. Louis history.
This semester Molly and Kristi are working on identifying locations and historical information in local gay and lesbian publications, such as The Gay News-Telegraph. Jennifer is working on organizing data collected this summer in preparation for GIS encoding to occur this winter/early spring.
