Marcia M. Gallo (History) has been named Martin Duberman Visiting Scholar for 2017–18 by the New York Public Library. The visiting scholar program fosters excellence in LGBT studies by providing funds for scholars to do research in the library’s preeminent LGBT historical collections. The fellowship is open to both academic faculty and independent scholars who have made a significant contribution to the field. At UNLV, where she teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses, Gallo serves as MA program coordinator. She also is the current president of the Southwest Oral History Association, which promotes community as well as academically based oral history projects in Nevada, California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. During her fellowship at the library, she will be researching the impact of feminist and lesbian theory and activism on the LGBTQ movements and its organizations from the 1970s through the 1990s.
