Biographical history

Marc Stein (historian and university teacher) received a Ph.D. in history from the University of Pennsylvania in 1995. He pursued research in constitutional law, politics and society of the United States, and social movements, gender, race and sexuality in North America, and has written extensively on these topics and other issues involving the gay and lesbian movements. After fellowships at the University of Pennsylvania and Bryn Mawr College and a two-year appointment as a visiting assistant professor at Colby College in Maine, Stein joined the History Department at York University in 1998. He became associated with the School of Women’s Studies in 2001, and was Co-ordinator of the Sexuality Studies Program from 2005 to 2009. Stein was appointed the Jamie and Phyllis Pasker Professor of History at San Francisco State University in 2014.
