The first Bridges lecture in 2018 will explore how humans have sought to make the Arctic legible (to borrow the phrase of James C.

Susan Hill: Indigenous Speakers Series

The Indigenous Speakers Series proudly presents professor of history Susan M. Hill, author of The Clay We Are Made Of. If we want to understand Haudenosaunee (Six Nations) history, we need to consider the history of Haudenosaunee land. For countless generations prior to European contact, land and territory informed Haudenosaunee thought and philosophy, and was a primary determinant of Haudenosaunee identity.
