American Studies Colloquium: Visiting Speaker Dr. Lisa Brooks
Monday, March 16, 2020 - 3:30pm
Wooten Hall 316
Lisa Brooks (Amherst College) is a brilliant interdisciplinary scholar whose latest book, Our Beloved Kin: A New History of King Philip's War (Yale UP, 2019), has already been awarded at least six prestigious book prizes, including the Bancroft Prize in American History and Diplomacy. She will be sharing new work with us that combines Indigenous Studies, American history and literature, and environmental studies and includes, among many other exciting components, anecdotal evidence from her own coyote-tracking experiences.
