Friday, February 2, 6:00 p.m. (snacks), 6:30 presentation in Agape
On Friday, February 2nd at 6:30 pm, join author and UW-Madison History Professor Dr. Stephen Kantrowitz in a conversation regarding the transformations of American citizenship in the Civil War era through the experiences of the Ho-Chunk people. Dr. Kantrowitz is the Plaenert-Bascom and Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor of History at UW Madison.
“Citizens of a Stolen Land — a Ho-Chunk History of the Nineteenth-Century United States.”
This history of Ho-Chunk sovereignty and citizenship offers a bracing new perspective on citizenship’s perils and promises, the way the broader nineteenth century conflict between “free soil” and slaveholding expansion shaped Indigenous life, and the continuing impact of Native people’s struggles and claims on U.S. politics and society.
