History, Geography, and Indigenous Lives: A Conversation Between Lisa Brooks and Joe Hall
April 15, 2021, 6:30PM, via Zoom
Lisa Brooks, Amherst College Professor of English and American Studies, and author of Our Beloved Kin: A New History of King Philip’s War, joins Bates College Associate Professor of History Joseph Hall to discuss their bodies of research on New England Native American lives.
Hall, who teaches courses on colonial North America, the United States’ War for Independence, environmental history, and Native American history–including an intensive “Short Term” course on the history of Wabanakis–engages with Brooks’s “pathbreaking scholarship… grounded not just in extensive archival research but also in the land and communities of Native New England.”
A place-based history that has been long hidden or misinterpreted is being looked at with fresh eyes–and informing a better understanding of and appreciation for present-day Native peoples in Maine and New England.
