Symposium: Carlisle, PA: Site of Indigenous Histories, Memories, and Reclamations

On October 5-6, 2012, the School of American Studies is co-sponsoring an international symposium in the USA that will bring together Native and non-Native scholars, leaders, artists, and community members to share their work, concerns, and perspectives.

Carlisle was the location of the first government Indian boarding school. The school’s goal was to obliterate Native cultures and prepare Native American children for citizenship. Carlisle Indian School is a research topic of Jacqueline Fear-Segal and several American Studies graduate students; the University holds copies of the school’s newspaper archive.
