Talk, talk, talk!

I'm delighted to say I'll be taking part in SONAR: Symposium on Nerdy Academic Research in April. I'll be presenting a talk entitled "From Amerind to Dorvan: Star Trek's Uneasy History with Native America," based on my essay in the forthcoming 2013 collection Star Trek and History. (Psst! The call for papers is still open, if you're interested in taking part! I'd love to see you there.)

In other news, the McConnell Center at the University of Louisville has just released a video of the public talk I gave there in October 2012, "Rethinking the Trail of Tears: Liberty, Constitutionalism, and the Cherokee People."

"Rethinking the Trail of Tears," Dr. Amy Sturgis from McConnell Center on Vimeo.

October 25, 2012: Dr. Amy H. Sturgis delivered a lecture on the Trail of Tears as a part of the McConnell Center's reTHINK public lecture series.

Yay, we get to see and hear Dr. Amy at work! :D Thanks!

Will watch when I'm not wiped out, but excited about this! SO glad you posted it. :) BTW, Louisville's just about 2.5 hours away, so you were near my neck of the woods! Yay Kentucky!

Febobe :)

PS. Speaking of Kentucky, is there any chance I might see you here?
