Description:

Christine DeLucia is an assistant professor of History at Williams College and the author of, Memory Lands: King Philip’s War and the Place of Violence in the Northeast, (Yale University Press, 2018). She uses scholarship and teaching to build stronger understandings of Indigenous peoples--past and present--and the complex relationships they have developed with place, heritage, and colonization. Her talk will discuss the intersections of memory and public history that she engages in her book, while also focusing on how collaboration with tribal nations can transform archival research.
