Daniel Hurewitz

Ph.D., The University of California at Los Angeles


Daniel Hurewitz teaches a range of courses on the 20th-century United States and the history of gender and sexuality, including our post-Civil War U.S. survey, the U.S. Since 1945, American LGBT history,and Men, Women and Sex in the 20th-Century U.S.. His own research and writing focuses on the development of U.S. gendered and sexual identities, the emergence of LGBT politics, and the resistance that movement generated. His first book, Stepping Out (1997), traced a history of LGBT life across Manhattan, presented as a series of walking tours.  His second book, Bohemian Los Angeles and the Making of Modern Politics (2007), focused on the communities of L.A. artists, leftists, and gay activists who helped give birth to the American gay rights movement and identity politics more broadly. Examining these communities from the 1920s through the 1950s, the book argued that they helped fashion a new political attention to the inner emotional life. His more recent work attempts to shape a history of American homophobic policies and his current book project analyzes how those policies were put into action at the local level, and given meaning by police forces, district attorneys, and judges.
