Seminar

We were delighted to announce the formation of a spring semester 2005 Hall Center ongoing seminar:
Indigenous & African Experiences in the Americas.

The Hall Center seminar was a component of the Shifting Borders of Race and Identity: A Research and Teaching Project on the Native American and African American Experience, the collaboration between the Hall Center for the Humanities at the University of Kansas and Haskell Indian Nations University which brought scholars to the borderlands betwe en Native American and African American studies.  These seminars provided a welcoming space for emerging and established university scholars as well as community researchers who wanted to present original work that would contribute to the critical examination of this important interdisciplinary study.  Seminar directors were Zanice Bond de Pérez zbperez@ku.edu  and Jim Leiker jleiker1@jccc.edu

This three year seminar welcomed faculty, students, and tribal members whose research and/ or life experiences explored the intersectional analysis of race, ethnicity, and culture; challenged the existing binary concepts of race; and found innovative ways to conceptualize identity.
