Newberry Consortium in American Indian Studies

From July 11 to August 6, 2016, I participated in the summer institute at the Newberry Consortium in American Indian Studies in Chicago. This year’s institute led by professors Kate Wisecup and Kathleen Washburn focused on “Writing Indigenous Histories: Print, Material, and Digital Sites of Memory.”

Besides accessing the Newberry Library’s archives for dissertation research,  I wrote a research paper and gave a conference presentation during the Newberry’s graduate student conference. Entitled “Art or Ethnography: The Politics of Display and the Entangled Messages of the 1939 Indian Court at the Golden Gate International Exposition,” my presentation analyzed a slide reel on the 1939 exposition in the Newberry’s archive.
