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."
