Eve Adams: Jewish, Polish, Emigre, Lesbian, Pioneer, Activist: A Book Talk by Jonathan Ned Katz
ASHP invites you to join pioneering historian Jonathan Ned Katz for a talk about his new biography, The Daring Life and Dangerous Times of Eve Adams.
Katz is an independent scholar, historian, and visual artist. Starting in 1976, he has published five books on sexual and gender history, and he founded OutHistory.org, a major website on U.S. LGBTQ+ history. In his newest book, Katz uncovers the story of Eve Adams -- an associate of Emma Goldman, a radical activist who ran lesbian- and -gay-friendly tea rooms in Chicago and New York and who, in 1925, published a book titled Lesbian Love. For her writing and her activism, Adams was surveilled, arrested, and deported to Europe where she died at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Katz will discuss Adams' extraordinary life and his research to uncover this history.
Cosponsored by the Graduate Program in History and CLAGS: Center for Gay and Lesbian Studies, this event is made possible through the generous support of the CUNY Office of Student Inclusion Initiatives and LaGuardia Community College and the New York City Council through the offices of Daniel Dromm (District 25) and Speaker Corey Johnson.
When: Thursday, April 7, 4:00-5:15 pm
