Update on SpeakOut Project

Hi everyone! I am excited to update you on the status of SpeakOut, the oral history project on LGBTQIA+ life at Dartmouth, which is very close to my heart. Over the past few years, I have been collaborating with the Dartmouth College Library and the History Department to define this initiative and shape its mission and vision. Per the announcement in the link below, the College has selected SpeakOut to be an official part of Dartmouth’s 250th Anniversary celebration. With the College’s formal support, the project will benefit from generous budgetary and staffing resources.
