Living Queer History

In this episode of Queer Voices of the South I talk to Dr. Gregory Samantha Rosenthal about her new book Living Queer History – Remembrance and Belonging in a Southern City, released in December 2021 by the University of North Carolina Press. You can find the episode here.

Gregory Samantha Rosenthal, PhD, is Associate Professor of History and Coordinator of the Public History Concentration at Roanoke College in Salem, Virginia. She teaches courses in public history, women’s and gender studies, and general education. She is interested in environmental studies, working-class studies, LGBTQ, queer, and trans studies, community organizing, and scholar-activism. Her pronouns are she/her or they/them.

C’est tout!


Morris Ardoin’s book, STONE MOTEL – MEMOIRS of a CAJUN BOY can be purchased through the publisher, on the independent bookseller website Indibound, or on AmazonBarnes & Noble, and other booksellers, and is also available as an audiobook on Audible.

  1. Hi Morris,

    I enjoyed your interview with Dr. Rosenthal. Roanoke is in our orbit. Have spent a good bit of time there, are planning another visit in April. We love the grand old Hotel Roanoke, and its elegant, very southern restaurant. The best spoon bread I have ever tasted!

    John’s grandfather was valedictorian of Salem College about 100 years ago!

    I am a bit hearing impaired and had trouble understanding Dr. Rosenthal, but fortunately your voice is loud and clear and I missed noting of what you said.

    All best, Joel
