Participants of 2014 NCAIS Graduate Student Workshop at University of Nevada, Las Vegas

The consortium offers a workshop in research methods organized around a topic proposed by consortium faculty. The workshop brings together an instructor (or instructors) and one participating graduate student from each NCAIS member institution for two and a half days of intensive study.

The workshop emphasizes discussion among students of assigned readings and introduces students to relevant Newberry special collections. Instructors are faculty at member institutions. The workshop takes place in early fall or spring and is typically held at the Newberry. (Applications to lead the workshop may specify either a member institution or another research facility as the host.)

NCAIS Spring Workshop in Research Methods
This workshop will examine the historical relationships between imperial, national, and Indigenous borderlands, focusing on the archival holding at UNM’s Center for Southwest Research. We will discuss the impact of empires, settler states, and their borders on Indigenous communities, while also asking how we can think about borderlands from Indigenous perspectives.
