Out: An Oral History of UGA Law’s Queer Faculty and Staff


Yesterday the OUTLaw student organization sponsored a first-of-its-kind event in which faculty and staff came together to engage in conversations recorded as an oral history on the topic of coming out and the LGBTQ community at UGA School of Law. Among the panelists who participated, Associate Director for Instruction, Access and Outreach Law Librarian Maureen Cahill spoke of her experience as both a law student and an employee at the School of Law, and was joined by staff member Laura Woodson, faculty members Joe Miller, Melissa Durkee and Sandra Mayson, and OUTLaw student president Charles Hicks.

The room was packed – standing room only! The library has archived the audio of the recording in the Oral History collection online: https://digitalcommons.law.uga.edu/oral_histories/19/ From there you can download an MP3, stream the audio embed from YouTube, and view the program flier. A video recording will also be made available very soon as well.
