Dr. Ned Blackhawk, professor of history and American studies at Yale University, will discuss “American Indians and the Remaking of U.S. Colonial History” at the 2018 Frank L. Klement Lecture on Thursday, Oct. 11, at 4:30 p.m., in the Raynor Memorial Libraries Beaumier Suites.
Blackhawk is the author of “Violence over the Land: Indians and Empires in the early American West,” a study of the American Great Basin. The book garnered six professional prizes. In addition, Blackhawk is involved in various professional associations and serves on the editorial boards of the American Quarterly and Ethnohistory. He has also led the establishment of two fellowships.
The Frank L. Klement Lecture commemorates distinguished scholars in American history. Klement joined the Department of History at Marquette University in 1948 and retired 27 years later as professor emeritus.
The event is free and open to the public.
