Boyd Cothran (History/York University), Amy Lonetree (History/UC-Santa Cruz), and Dian Million (American Indian Studies/Washington).

This interdisciplinary panel brings together scholars whose work raises questions of memory and memorialization in contexts of colonialism to ask what role institutions such as universities and museums should take in addressing historical trauma and colonialism, especially in a neoliberal context.

Boyd Cothran is author of Remembering the Modoc War: Redemptive Violence and the Making of American Innocence (2014). Amy Lonetree is author of Decolonizing Museums: Representing Native America in National and Tribal Museums (2012). Dian Million is author of Therapeutic Nations: Healing in an Age of Indigenous Human Rights (2013).

This talk is co-presented by the Indigenous Studies Research Initiative; the Native American and Indigenous People's Steering Group; the Colloquium on Indigeneity and Native American Studies; the Chabraja Center for Historical Studies; the Department of History; and the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities as part of the Institute's 2016-2017 Debt Dialogue Series.
