Mary A. Armstrong is Charles A. Dana Professor of Women’s & Gender Studies and English and Chair of Women’s & Gender Studies. She is the faculty director of the Queer Archives Project. She holds a Ph.D. in English and a Graduate Certificate in Women’s Studies from Duke University and joined the Lafayette faculty in 2009. Mary teaches and does research in Queer Studies. She is also interested in issues of diversity in STEM fields, strategies for institutional change in higher education, and inclusive pedagogies. She teaches courses in Victorian literature, gender and STEM, and feminist theory, among others. The Queer Archives Project is rooted in her class WGS 340: Sexuality Studies, Lafayette’s first Queer Studies course. Mary coordinates project design and development with QAP colleagues, is privileged to conduct oral history interviews, and is deeply honored to be part of the incredible QAP Team. Elaine Stomber serves as Co-Director and College Archivist in the Special Collections & College Archives department of Skillman Library. She oversees the College’s records management program, handles manuscript collection processing and digitization, teaches undergraduate students using Special Collections, and contributes to exhibitions and programming. She is dedicated to identifying and documenting the voices of underrepresented groups in the College Archives and is excited about the potential the Queer Archives Project has to improve campus climate and contribute to LGBTQ+ studies.
Charlotte Nunes is Dean of Lafayette College Libraries. She is interested in the role academic libraries can play facilitating undergraduate research opportunities that center on archives, oral history, and community partnerships. The Queer Archives Project engages all of these areas of interest, so in her previous capacity as Director of Digital Scholarship Services, she was delighted to play a role developing the foundations of the project. Her background in digital archiving of oral history collections, as well as her experience in open-source web-publishing platforms such as Scalar, on which the QAP is built, informed her consultation on the project. She enjoyed helping to develop a data model that expresses the research emphases of the QAP and takes advantage of Scalar’s multi-nodal, multi-linear structure.
