The History Department and American Culture Studies Program in Arts & Sciences will present "Indigeneity and the Production of History: Oral History Praxis in a Native American Community," a lecture by distinguished visiting scholar Malinda Maynor Lowery.

Indigenous people work to make the facts of their history known; such facts are rarely understood from the written record alone.

This talk discusses the practice of oral history within the Lumbee Indian Tribe of North Carolina and how history constitutes an act. An Indigenous Studies lens helps us see history as doing, as well as telling, reading, and studying.

This colloquium is being supported in part through funding from the Office of the Provost: Distinguished Visiting Scholar Program. 

Free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be served.
