Legacies of 1620 and the Mayflower: Native Americans of New England
Christoph Strobel will present an interpretive history of the indigenous peoples of New England. This talk will focus on a few select case studies, historic sketches, and biographies from throughout New England, exploring the story of Native Americans in the region. Without turning a blind eye to the horrendous impact that colonization, dispossession, and racism had on the lives of indigenous peoples in New England, it will emphasize Native American resistance, adaptation, and survival under often harsh and unfavorable circumstances.
Professor of History at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, Christoph Strobel teaches courses in global and Native American history. His most recent book is Native Americans of New England. He is also the author of the Global Atlantic: 1400–1900, The Testing Grounds of Modern Empire, and, co-author with Alice Nash, of Daily Life of Native Americans from Post-Columbian through Nineteenth-Century America. Strobel has also published three books on immigration and his scholarly essays appear in many academic journals and in various edited collections.
This online event will be presented on Zoom.
