Violence and Indigenous Communities

@ Newberry Library

60 W Walton St, Chicago, IL 60610

Opening Friday, May 12th, from 8:30am - 5:30PM

On view through Saturday, May 13th

Recognizing the reality of war and massacre, this scholarly symposium takes new approaches to examining violence in past and present-day Native communities by engaging the intersections of a broad array of themes. These themes include historical memory, the destruction of homelands and environments, the appropriation of arts and cultural heritage, and gendered assault.

This symposium is free to attend, but please email the Newberry’s McNickle Center at if you’d like to receive any of the pre-circulated papers in advance.

Sessions will be held Friday, May 12, between 8:30 am and 5:30 pm, and Saturday, May 13, between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm.
