USD Professor Named President of American Indian Studies Association
“I am excited to contribute to the field of Native American and American Indian studies,” Boxer said of her one-year term as president. “My position also serves as a spotlight for our program at USD. This national platform will show that we have a growing program in Native American studies at USD.”
The American Indian Studies Association, hosted by the American Indian Studies program at Arizona State University campus in Tempe, holds an annual meeting that showcases research from faculty members as well as undergraduate and graduate students involved in Native American or American Indian studies programs at institutions throughout the country. Each year’s conference focuses on a different theme and the association invites people from the Native American community to present at the conference as well, Boxer said.
The American Indian Studies Association is the longest standing organization dedicated to the discipline of American Indian or Native American studies in the nation. Boxer joined the faculty at USD in 2014 and earned her doctorate in American Indian history and United States history from Arizona State University in 2009.
