Administrative history

The Queer Peel Oral History Project was a student-driven initiative that emerged from a third-year history course taught by Prof. Elspeth Brown at the University of Toronto Mississauga in early 2020.

Archival history

Immediate source of acquisition or transfer

Interview recordings were created and submitted by student interviewers at the University of Toronto Mississauga as partial fulfillment of requirements for an undergraduate course. Of the 25 interviews originally created, this collection is comprised only of those recordings for which voluntary written consent for archival deposit was obtained from both the student interviewers and narrators. Recordings were donated on their behalf by Elspeth Brown (course instructor and project director) at the conclusion of the course in 2020.

Content and structure area

Scope and content

Interviews were conducted by students enrolled in the undergraduate course HIS395S LGBTQ2+ Oral History: Queer Peel offered at the University of Toronto Mississauga in the 2020 winter term.
