Timothy Stewart-Winter is an associate professor of U.S. history. His first book, Queer Clout: Chicago and the Rise of Gay Politics (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2016), was co-recipient of the 2017 John Boswell Prize for the outstanding book on LGBT history published in English in the previous two years.
He is now working on two new book projects. The first is a study of vice control, morals policing, and the politics of gay sex in the post-World War II United States. The second book will examine the social history of the first decade of the AIDS crisis in the U.S.
Stewart-Winter has published articles in Journal of American History, the Journal of Urban History; Gender & History; and the Journal of the History of Sexuality. He also writes frequently on historical topics for broad audiences, including readers of the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Dissent, Slate, and New Jersey's Star-Ledger newspaper. He has appeared on NPR's All Things Considered to discuss the politics of remembering the 1969 Stonewall uprising.
He co-directs the Queer Newark Oral History Project with Whitney Strub and Christina Strasburger, and teaches courses in History, American Studies, and Women's & Gender Studies. He holds a Ph.D. in history from the University of Chicago and a B.A. in history from Swarthmore College, and has received Jacob K. Javits, ACLS/Mellon, and James C. Hormel fellowships.
