On War & Society Podcast – Human Testing in the North

Hi everyone, 

I would like to alert you all to an episode of the podcast On War & Society that I think many will find of interest. Dr. Matt Wiseman, a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Toronto, spoke to me, among other things, about human testing that was done on the Inuit in the Canadian North. It's a startling discovery that both complicates the historiography of Indigenous bodies, yet also fits quite nicely into it. Check it out on Apple Podcasts or Soundcloud!

CFP- Louisiana Historical Association April 12-14 2018

Dear Members,

2018 marks the 300 year anniversary of the founding of New Orleans. It is quite doubtful that the Louisiana colony would have survived without the aid and succor of Native Americans.  I invite members on this list doing research that falls within the broad boundaries of Colonial Louisiana to submit a proposal for this conference.  I believe it is critical that current research about indigenous people in this area be part of the narrative as we examine the history of this region in greater detail next year.
