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

A three-week institute for college and university teachers on Native American history, to be held at the Library of Congress.

Funding is requested for a Summer Institute for 22 higher education Summer Scholars, in residence at the Library of Congress, co-hosted by the Kluge Center, from June 12 - June 30, 2017. Ten Visiting Faculty will present their paradigm-shifting archival research on Native American ethnohistory, with focus on three crucial interaction regions: the Great Lakes, the Greater Southwest, and the Pacific Northwest. Work that has been in the forefront of scholarship in Native American Studies and that has been central as well to the transformation of scholarship in anthropology, American history, legal history, American Studies, and other humanities disciplines. This Institute also provides ample time for participants' individual research in the Library's rich and voluminous holdings in Native American history and culture. We will make a special outreach to seek applicants from tribal colleges, community colleges, small liberal arts colleges, and from contingent and adjunct faculty.
