Timothy Stewart-Winter is an assistant professor of U.S. history, specializing in political culture, social movements, and urban history. His first book, Queer Clout: Chicago and the Rise of Gay Politics (University of Pennsylvania Press, January 2016), traces the role of big-city municipal politics in the gay movement’s path since the 1950s from the closets to the corridors of power. He is currently working on a second book, tentatively entitled Sex and Drugs in the AIDS Crisis, examining the first fifteen years of the AIDS crisis in the U.S. and locating queer and black experiences of illness, death, and caregiving in their material and political context.
Stewart-Winter's writing has appeared in publications including the Journal of American History, Gender & History, the New York Times, and the Los Angeles Times. He was educated at Swarthmore College and the University of Chicago and taught at Yale University before coming to Rutgers in 2010. He is actively involved in the Queer Newark Oral History Project and teaches courses in history, Women's and Gender Studies, and the Graduate Program in American Studies.
