Stewart-Winter 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. His writing has appeared in the Journal of American History, the Journal of Urban History, Gender & History, the Journal of the History of Sexuality, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and Dissent, and he has appeared on NPR's All Things Considered.
