"The Rise and Fall and Rise of Civilizations: Indian Intellectual Culture during the Removal Era"

READ MORE ON WKU NEWS.

Here's Dr. Synder's description of the lecture: 

This talk addresses Indian intellectual history and, more broadly, a reconsideration of Indigenous engagement with global networks forged by the communications revolution. It focuses Native American students and alumni who attended Choctaw Academy (outside Lexington, KY), the first federally-controlled Indian boarding school in the United States. The school operated from 1825 to 1848, a formative period of U.S. imperialism, when federal Indian policy shifted from assimilation to removal. In justifying this change, Jacksonian officials sought to redefine the nature of Indianness—away from a primarily political identity based on membership in a foreign nation and toward a racial category associated with primitivism.

I focus on Indian scholars who pushed back, using varied tools assert Native sovereignty and modernity. Evidence drawn from their coursework and post-graduate lives reveals that Choctaw Academy’s students combined Indigenous knowledge with what they learned at school, a powerful alchemy which enabled them to theorize broadly about colonialism, nationalism, and even the nature of history. Far from a straightforward story of alienation, the students’ engagement with their coursework demonstrates how young Indian intellectuals used their studies to articulate a more empowering and useful narrative of both American and global history.

WKU graduate to present lecture on U.S. immigration law

Mario H. Nguyen, a 2012 WKU graduate, will return to campus on April 25 to give a talk on the origins, evolution and current state of U.S. immigration law as part of the 11th annual Tracing the Unexplored Series.

Nguyen’s talk, Tracing the Unexplored: A Journey Through the Immigration System, will be held from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Mass Media Technology Hall Auditiorium. Admission is free and open to the public.

Nguyen is a first-generation college graduate and the child of immigrant parents. He graduated from WKU with a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations. During his time at WKU, he earned much recognition with the Forensics Team, was a U.S. Fulbright Scholar to Mexico and was named one of the Top 40 Latinos under 40 in Foreign Policy by the Huffington Post. He is a third-year law student at Harvard Law School where he works at the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau on, among other things, Special Immigrant Juvenile Status cases. Nguyen won the 2015 NYU School of Law Immigration Moot Court Competition and was named Best Oralist.

“It is such a privilege to have Mario Nguyen, a well accomplished WKU alumnus, speak about the immigration system.  His account is informed by his experience -- as the son of immigrants and his work with juvenile cases -- as well as his law training at Harvard." Dr. Sonia Lenk said.

The event is co-sponsored by the WKU Department of Modern Languages, WKU Libraries, WKU Department of Geography & Geology, WKU Department of History, Kentucky Institute of International Studies (KIIS), WKU Glasgow Campus, WKU IT Division and Hilltoppers Organization of Latin American Students (HOLAS).

Are you ready to show your WKU pride and support of the Performing Arts? Amanda Clark, WKU Dance Coordinator, will be leading a Shim-Sham Shimmy Flash-Mob throughout campus. We need your help and support! A crew will be filming throughout campus, getting amazing shots, for a video to post on social media for National Tap Day onMay 25th!

 

The attached links will provide tutorials to help you tap like the dance majors on campus or quickly learn a basic non-tap dance version! Join in on the fun and help demonstrate how Hilltoppers unite! Meet other programs and departments, show your WKU pride, join our surprise guests, and help support Dance on the Hill!

 

When: Sunday, April 30th at 5:30 pm (filming will last no more than an hour, IF THAT!)

 

Where:We will meet in the FAC Colonnade

 

Shim-Sham Shimmy?!

This dance is the anthem of tap dance and dates back to the early 20th century when tap dance as we know it was developing!
