Section Information for Fall 2017
|How can museums grapple with centuries of unresolved trauma as they tell the stories of Native American histories and cultures? With this question as its foundation, this course will examine the ways Native history was created in nineteenth-century curiosity cabinets and museums, how Indigenous peoples have resisted, shaped, and ultimately come to control museum exhibits that were previously curator controlled, and how museums can honor Indigenous pasts while simultaneously asking hard questions about the history of settler colonialism in the United States. Students will be expected to read extensively on these topics, prepare well and participate in class discussions, and write both historiographical and critical essays.|
