The American Historical Associationís Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Historians Task Force is gathering information from AHA members and other historians who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and/or queer (LGBTQ) or whose work is on LGBTQ history. We seek to capture information about the experiences of LGBTQ historians (broadly defined) and the treatment of LGBTQ historians in the profession and discipline of history. While other professional associations have generated reports on the status of LGBTQ scholars and scholarship in their respective disciplines (eg. modern languages and sociology) no such efforts have been undertaken within the history profession. We believe that this survey will provide important insights into how LGBTQ persons and those doing LGBTQ history are faring in our discipline and how they perceive their place in it. With this information, the LGBTQ Historians Task Force will make formal and substantive recommendations to the AHA on how to address the concerns of LGBTQ historians.
Please complete the survey at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MZJ5XGW
Response time will vary but it should take between 15 and 60 minutes to complete the survey.
Please complete the questionnaire by December 15.
