GMU Student Project Featured in Slate Magazine

Eric Gonzaba is a doctoral student in American history at George Mason University. He received his BA in history and political science from Indiana University in 2012 and his MA in history and women and gender studies from George Mason University in 2014. His research interests revolve around the cultural politics of race and gender in late 20th century America, particularly 1970s African American and queer nightlife.

He formerly designed Wearing History: An Exhibit on LGBT History through T-shirts, an exhibit that featured t-shirts and other artifacts from the Chris Gonzalez Library and Archives of Indianapolis.





Wearing Gay History is a collaborative project between a number of Institutions, with primary input form GMU's Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media. Staff from GMU include Gonzaba and GMU graduate student Amanda Regan


Slate Magazine chose Wearing Gay History as one of the five digital history projects that dazzled us this year. The project documents the popular culture of the international LGBT community in its broader national and international dimensions. Congratulations to Eric for this well deserved recognition
