Introducing: Noah Littel

Hi, I’m Noah (they/them)! I’m joining the Department of Literature and Art as a PhD candidate.

I am in the second year of my PhD, and my research focuses on the history of LGBT+ archives in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and West-Germany, from the 1970s onwards. I am particularly interested in processes of inclusion and exclusion within the archives and collections, and the impact of this on the construction of LGBT+ heritage.

My PhD-project is part of the broader project ‘The Critical Visitor: The Heritage Sector at a Crossroads: The way of intersectionality’, which is led by associate professor Eliza Steinbock. The supervisors of my project are Eliza Steinbock (Maastricht University), Monika Baár (Leiden University) and Hester Dibbits (Reinwardt Academie).

I hold a BA in History, and a research MA in History: Political Culture and National Identities, both from Leiden University. My research mainly focusses on LGBT+ social movements. Previously, I have researched transgender history in the German Democratic Republic and the Federal Republic Germany; Dutch radical lesbian and gay social movements; and disabled LGBTI+ people in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

I am very much looking forward to being at FASoS and meeting you all!
