Re-inscribing Indigeneity: Creating Access to Native Narratives Through Scholarly Editing

Event Date: March 11, 2013 - 6 p.m.
Event Type: Open to public
Location: Massachusetts Archives, 220 Morrissey Blvd., Boston, 3rd Floor, Room 315
Event Cost: Free

The History Department's Archives Track, Native American and Indigenous Studies, and the Institute for New England Native American Studies invite you to this event featuring Paul Grant Costa and Tobias Glaza of the Yale Indian Papers Project. A reception will follow at 6:30 p.m.

Primary source materials on New England Native peoples’ history and culture have survived in libraries and archives for hundreds of years, but much of that record has remained unpublished and difficult to access. Our guests explore the challenges and possibilities of understanding Native cultures by gathering, editing, annotating, and making accessible a dispersed documentary record via an online research tool—the New England Indian Papers Series.
