Korbin Painter

Primary office:
327 Blake Hall


Painter’s research interests are located in the historical study of identity-based social movements and LGBTQ politics and cultures in the postwar United States. Specifically, he is interested in the Gay and Trans Liberation movements of the 1960s and 1970s. With a particular focus on material and print cultures, he seeks to explore the ways in which emotions, as social categories and political experiences, shaped the contours of these movements. He actively works to center the categories and experiences of race, class, gender, and geography in the fields of LGBTQ history, queer theory, and the history of emotions.
