Citizenship, Borders, Community & Critique

Native American and Indigenous Studies speaker series will engage students, scholars, and the community at large.

UC Irvine is launching a speaker series with leading scholars in Native American and Indigenous Studies (NAIS) in 2015.  The lecture series aims to enhance campus interest in NAIS scholarship; strengthen ties between UC Irvine and Native communities in Southern California; and promote inclusive excellence.  The series is organized by Adria L. Imada (History), Seth Davis (Law), and Glen Mimura (Film & Media Studies) in conversation with students, faculty, and staff in Humanities, Law, and Social Sciences.
