The UNC American Indian Center is pleased to announce that Professor Raymond Fogelson will serve as the guest lecturer for the 7th Annual Michael D. Green Lecture in American Indian Studies. We are fortunate to have Dr. Fogelson deliver this important lecture and to kick off American Indian Heritage Month.
Dr. Fogelson is a professor of Anthropology, of Human Development, and of Social Sciences at the University of Chicago. He conducts research on ethnology and ethnohistory of Indians in the Southeastern United States. His areas of concentration involve Indian identity, especially problems with tribal recognition and repatriation of physical remains and material culture. The combination of anthropology, representation of Native peoples, and popular culture are additional areas of research.
Thank you to the wonderful cosponsors for this year’s Michael D. Green Lecture: American Indian Center, Department of American Studies, American Indian & Indigenous Studies, Department of Anthropology, Department of History, Department of Religious Studies, and the Research Laboratories of Archaeology
