Gay and Lesbian Scholarly Directory in Preparation

CLAGS is preparing a Directory of Lesbian and Gay Scholarship that will provide information about scholars working throughout the country and abroad.

It is believed that such a directory will foster work in lesbian and gay studies by helping scholars concerned with similar topics to find each other across regional and disciplinary boundaries.

Also, it will provide a valuable resource for persons putting together anthologies, lecture series, and professional caucuses.

CLAGS has circulated a one-page questionnaire about scholars’ publications, research interests, and affiliations through a variety of conduits; several gay academic caucuses have graciously included it in their newsletters.

More than 100 scholars have already returned the form (including several Europeans and Australians). The hope is to publish the Directory in 1990.

For more information or to request a questionnaire, contact the committee chair: Prof. Seymour Kleinberg, English Department, Long Island University, University Plaza, Brooklyn, New York 11201.
