Gale Case Studies Bring the Past Into the Present

Gale introduced Gale Case Studies, a new online instructional tool organized by topic to help “college and university instructors develop and strengthen students’ critical thinking skills around contemporary social justice issues using historical content” and “help students learn how social issues have evolved from people who have experienced the events first-hand.” Primary sources cover topics such as LBGT+ issues, race, political extremism, and public health. Each interdisciplinary module has case studies from these curated primary sources, as well as discussion questions and links to other curated content. The guided workflow integrates with existing learning management systems.

Gale notes, “Intersectional LGBTQ Issues is the first module released today that offers a closer look at the history of the LGBTQ community and activism in the 20th and 21st centuries. It provides insight into both direct-action efforts such as ACT UP’s demonstration at the St. Patrick’s cathedral, as well as local activism aimed at reversing problematic policies such the anti-crossdressing laws and the lack of documentation about violence against LGBTQ people.”

For more information, read the press release.
