The University Library has partnered with the Western Development Museum and Saskatoon Pride to host a digital panel as part of Spark Your Pride, an event aimed at creating space to share and explore queer histories and stories.

Entitled So You Have a Queer Collection—Now What?, the digital panel will feature USask history professor Dr. Valerie Korinek; Joan Kanigan, CEO of the Western Development Museum; and Albert McLeod, co-director of the Two Spirit People of Manitoba. The panel will also highlight the Neil Richards Collection of Sexual and Gender Diversity, a unique 2SLGBTQ+ collection of more than 8,000 titles

This discussion will explore the cultural significance of such collections and how they at once reflect and uplift 2SLGBTQ+ lives. Through the lens of their own practices and perspectives, panelists will address two questions:

  • In what ways do these collections draw 2SLGBTQ+ people out of the shadows, honour their existence, normalize their lives and integrate their experiences into mainstream culture?
  • What responsibility do cultural institutions, as stewards of these collections, bear in making them accessible in ways that can influence and reshape the common narratives about 2SLGBTQ+ people?

The moderated panel discussion and question-and-answer session will begin at 11:30 am on Tuesday, June 16 via Zoom meeting.

For more information and to register for the panel, visit saskatoonpride.ca.
