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

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.

CAPS Group: “Intersecting Identities”

This support group is focused on providing a safe space for diverse voices to connect and to be heard along with raising awareness of adjustment to college concerns for diverse populations.

Mid-Autumn Festival

The mid-autumn festival, or moon festival, is when families gather to sample autumn harvests, light lanterns and admire what is believed to be the fullest moon of the year.

You are invited to join us in celebrating the holiday with a reunion among the TU community. There will be authentic food and performances to enjoy. Support our boba fundraiser where 100% of all proceeds will go to a COVID-19 relief fund in Asia.

Collaboration between the Asian American Student Association and the Vietnamese American Student Association.
