Centering the Native South: A Roundtable on Native Pasts and Futures
In this roundtable conversation hosted by the Society of Early Americanists, three scholars of Indigenous histories in the Southeast will discuss their scholarship, while reflecting on the ways that early Indigenous histories bear on the present and future. The conversation will highlight and build on their research, which attends to Indigenous women’s lives and histories, as reflected in both written documents and material culture, to collective projects of education and care within Indigenous nations, and to the connections between Indigenous pasts and presents. The distinguished panelists are Dr. Brooke Bauer (Catawba; University of South Carolina, Lancaster), Dr. Malinda Maynor Lowery (Lumbee; University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill), and Dr. Julie L. Reed (Cherokee; Pennsylvania State University).
The program is co-sponsored by the Omohundro Institute of Early American History & Culture, an independent research organization sponsored by the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia.
This virtual panel discussion is free and open to the public to attend, but registration is required.
This event is supported in part by a grant from Georgia Humanities.
