VERMILLION, S.D. -- Audra Simpson, an associate professor of anthropology at Columbia University, will present the 2016 Joseph Harper Cash Memorial Lecture on Thursday, March 17 at 7 p.m. in Farber Hall. Simpson’s lecture is titled, “We are Not Red Indians (We Might all Be Red Indians): Anticolonial Sovereignty Across the Borders of Time, Place and Sentiment.”
Simpson is a member of the Kahnawake Mohawk tribe and has won multiple awards for her studies and teaching. She also is the author and co-author of articles published in the Duke University Press, Cultural Anthropology, American Quarterly, Junctures, Law Contemporary Problem and Wicazo Sa Review.
The Joseph Harper Cash Memorial Lecture was established in 1995, after the passing of Joseph Cash, Ph.D., a College of Arts & Sciences dean for 10 years. Cash held an interest for topics of American Indian culture, history and issues, and the annual lecture series presents topics related to his interests.
This lecture is free and open to the public in USD’s Farber Hall inside Old Main. The annual lecture is made possible by an endowment from Cash’s family and the sponsorship of the Department of Native American Studies.
