Dr. Chris Freeman, Ph. D

Chris Freeman teaches English and Gender Studies at the University of Southern California’s Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences. He earned a Ph.D. in English and Gay Studies from Vanderbilt University. Much of the work he has done as a scholar has direct links to Los Angeles. His first book, The Isherwood Century: Essays on the Life and Work of Christopher Isherwood, which he co-edited with James Berg, won the Lambda Literary Award in Gay Studies in 2001. He and Berg have followed that collection up with Conversations with Christopher Isherwood and a collection about queer Los Angeles called Love, West Hollywood. Chris also edited a Hollywood memoir by John Carlyle, Under the Rainbow.

Chris received the Monette-Horwitz Trust Award in 2005, and he joined the advisory committee for the Monette-Horwitz Trust in 2006. He was proud to join the board at ONE Archives in 2009. As a scholar who teaches and writes about queer history, he is committed to the mission of ONE and to the importance of ONE’s place in that history.
