The D’Arcy McNickle Center launched the Seminar Series in American Indian and Indigenous Studies in the fall 2008. The seminars feature scholarly discussion of papers based on work in progress. Faculty, graduate students, and independent scholars are encouraged to attend and to circulate news of this forum to colleagues.
Seminar sessions are held on the first Thursday of the month from 3:30 - 5 pm at the Newberry, 60 West Walton Street, Chicago, Illinois. We will pre-circulate papers to those planning to attend. If you cannot attend and want to read a paper, please contact the author directly. To receive a copy of a paper, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (312) 255-3552. Papers are available for request two weeks prior to the seminar date.
The seminar format assumes that participants have read the essays in advance, and that those requesting the paper will attend. Please do not request a paper unless you plan to attend. We encourage faculty members to invite their graduate students to attend.
Our 2019-2020 Series will begin on November 7, 2019. Stay tuned for an announcement of presenters coming soon!
