False Starts: Native Americans, Representation, and Museums

Professor Steven Conn, Professor and Director of the Public History Program, Ohio State University

Steven Conn is author of several books, including Museums and American Intellectual Life, 1876-1926 (2000); History's Shadow: Native Americans and Historical Consciousness in the 19th Century (2004); and most recently Do Museums Still Need Objects? (2010). He is also professor and director of Public History at Ohio State University and editor of the e-journal Origins: Current Events in Historical Perspective. Although Professor Conn has written extensively on topics related to the Eisenburg Institute and College of Literatures, Sciences and the Arts themes for 2009-10, his newest project has nothing to do with them at all. Conn is presently writing a history of anti-urbanism in the 20th century.
