Writer and designer Nate Schulman will present a lecture on graphic-design strategies in queer activism followed by a hands-on workshop inspired by archival materials at the ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives. The workshop will focus on design strategies utilized by early queer activists in the post–World War II era, a period of queer activism often overshadowed by AIDS activism in the 1980s and 1990s. Schulman’s lecture, along with a brief introduction by an archivist from the ONE Archives, will expose students to rare archival materials and historical approaches for raising consciousness.
