Joy Porter named Fulbright Scholar at Dartmouth

Joy Porter holds a Professorship in Indigenous Studies at the University of Hull, U.K. She gained her PhD and MA in 1993 from the University of Nottingham, U.K. and has held fellowships from the Leverhulme Trust, the Arts & Humanities Research Council and the British Academy. She has written a series of books, including studies of American Indian environmentalism, Indian Freemasonry and Indian intellectualism, that connect Native American history to modernity and its meanings. During her stay at Dartmouth College, Joy will be developing her next project, a study of unconventional warfare within Native history across three centuries called Native American Indian Ways of War. Joy will also be contributing to the Yale Group for the Study of Native America, and speaking at West Point Military Academy and Virginia Commonwealth University. Joy’s ambition as an historian is to work to displace stereotype and to make Native concerns central across disciplinary boundaries.
