Description:

Doug Kiel, Thursday February 18, 12:30 p.m. in Harris Hall, room 108 "Unsettling Territory: Oneida Indian Resurgence and Anti-Sovereignty Backlash"

Doug Kiel is a citizen of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin and an Assistant Professor of American Studies and Faculty Affiliate in History at Williams College. He completed his PhD in History at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He studies American Indian history and nation rebuilding, federal Indian law and policy, and settler colonialism in the Midwest. He is working on a book manuscript entitled Unsettling Territory: Oneida Indian Resurgence and Anti-Sovereignty Backlash. His book project explores the origins of recent litigation between the Oneida Nation and the Village of Hobart, a mostly non-Native municipality that exists within the boundaries of the Oneida Reservation and seeks to forestall the tribe from recovering land that was lost a century ago.
