Native American and Indigenous Student Interest Group (NAISIG) is bringing Professor of History at Columbia University Karl Jacoby to campus for a graduate student workshop and a public lecture for the UM community. Jacoby is author of several monographs, such as the 2001 Crimes Against Nature: Squatters, Poachers, Thieves and the Hidden History of American Conservation, then 2008’s Shadows at Dawn: A Borderlands Massacre and the Violence of History. Just recently, he published his third monograph, 2016 The Strange Career of William Ellis: The Texas Slave Who Became a Mexican Millionaire. He will be presenting on his current work, working on the violence of history and race. His lecture is titled, “The History of Violence, the Violence of History: Dilemmas and Challenges in Writing the History of Native American Genocide.” This very relevant and engaging lecture will comment on the state of/in indigenous history and its stakes for cross-ethnic studies.
