Reclaiming lesbian and gay voices from the past is the topic of a lecture at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.

March 21, 2002 GENEVA, N.Y.—Henry Minton, professor emeritus of psychology at the University of Windsor, Canada, will give a talk titled “Reclaiming Lesbian and Gay Voices from the Past: Implications for Emancipatory Science” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 4, in the Geneva Room of the Warren Hunting Smith Library on the Hobart and William Smith Colleges campus.

Minton is the author of Lewis M. Therman: Pioneer in Psychological Testing and Currents of Thought in American Social Psychology. His most recent book is Departing From Deviance: A History of Homosexual Rights and Emancipatory Science in America, which has been described as a book that “breathes new life into how we think about homosexuality and its past.” Minton holds a bachelor's degree from New York University, a master's degree from Southern Illinois University, and a Ph.D. from Pennsylvania State University.

Minton's visit is sponsored by the lesbian and gay studies, American studies, and history departments, as well as The Fisher Center for the Study of Women and Men.
