Do not feed the stereotype: Native Americans now

Prof Jacqueline Fear-Segal - School of Art, Media, and American Studies

Julian Study Centre lecture theatre, UEA

American Indians appear to have secured a place in hearts, minds, and media around the globe, but make only brief appearances in the historical account – often in limited, prescribed, or stereotypical roles. This talk will place contemporary Native nations in historical context and show how an awareness of their presence is vital for a proper understanding of the USA and our contemporary world.

Free, no booking required. For more information, email events@uea.ac.uk or call 01603 592130.
