LGBTQ+ Research Seminar Series: Bridging Gaps and Building Community Bridges

Februar 14, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


This research seminar series explores LGBTQ+ stories in the Science Museum Group’s collection, UK cultural institutions and beyond. It has been curated by a colleague network at the Science Museum that focuses on gender and sexuality.

Many UK collections have historically excluded LGBTQ+ stories. For this series, the gender and sexuality network has invited scholars, community builders and SMG representatives to showcase their work, discuss opportunities and challenges faced inside and outside of the museum setting. Our objective is to create a discursive environment and look to future practical activities.

There will be stories of how queerness is lived in a variety of communities as well as the intersection of science, technology and LGBTQ+ history. There will be an exploration of who is represented in galleries and the role of social media as a way to transcend the ‘gallery’, to tell otherwise untold stories. Research will also be showcased—into a queer cataloguing project and a toolkit that uncovers hidden gendered and/or queer stories in museum collections.
