Evidence of a Queer Past: Recovering Willa Cather and Edith Lewis’ Creative Partnership

January 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Just what were lesbian sexuality and identity in the early twentieth century U.S., and how do orientations toward evidence inform biographical inquiry into the lives of women who loved women in the historical record?

Willa Cather and Edith Lewis lived an un-closeted, if discreet, life as a couple in New York City from 1908 to Cather’s death in 1947. In this lecture, Professor Melissa Homestead will give a brief overview of her recent book recovering Cather and Lewis’s domestic partnership and literary collaboration, The Only Wonderful Things: The Creative Partnership of Willa Cather and Edith Lewis.

This is a hybrid-presentation event. Please join us in the Tyrrell Hall Auditorium at The University of Tulsa, or participate online via Zoom.
