On Native Grounds: Studies of Native American Histories and the Land

A four-week institute for twenty college and university faculty at the Library of Congress on Native Americans in U.S. history.

Funding is requested for a Summer Institute for 20 higher education Summer Scholars, in residence at the Library of Congress, hosted by the Kluge Center. from June 19-July 16, 2016, on the topic of “On Native Grounds: Studies on Native American Histories and the Land.” Eight Visiting Faculty will present their paradigm-shifting archival research on issues of land, sovereignty, treaties, and Native American culture, work that has been in the forefront of scholarship in Native American Studies, and that has been central to the transformation of scholarship in anthropology and archaeology, political and legal history, comparative religion, art history and American Studies. The Institute also provides time for participants’ individual research in the library’s rich and voluminous holdings on Native Americans. In publicizing the project we will make a special outreach to tribal colleges, community colleges, and small liberal arts colleges.
