Meeting Description: 

Shari M. Huhndorf received her PhD in comparative literature from New York University, and she is currently Class of 1938 Professor of Native American Studies in the Department of Ethnic Studies at UC Berkeley. Her research and teaching focus on the areas of interdisciplinary Native American studies, Alaska Native studies, contemporary literary and visual culture, cultural studies, gender studies, and American studies.

Professor Huhndorf is the author of two books, Going Native: Indians in the American Cultural Imagination (Cornell University Press, 2001) and Mapping the Americas: The Transnational Politics of Contemporary Native Culture (Cornell University Press, 2009), and a co-editor of Indigenous Women and Feminism: Politics, Activism, Culture (University of British Columbia Press, 2010), winner of the Canadian Women's Studies Association Prize for Outstanding Scholarship. Another co-edited work, Sovereignty, Indigeneity, and the Law (Duke University Press, 2011), a special issue of South Atlantic Quarterly, won the Council of Editors of Learned Journals award for best special issue of a journal as well, as the award for outstanding indigenous scholarship from the American Indian and Alaska Native Professors Association for 2011. Her work has also appeared in journals including Critical Inquiry, PMLA, American Quarterly, American Anthropologist, South Atlantic Quarterly, Social Identities, and Annals of Scholarship and Signs (forthcoming). She has received major fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the American Association of University Women. Currently she is working on two book projects: a manuscript tentatively titled “Indigeneity and the Politics of Space: Gender, Geography, Culture,” and, with Roy Huhndorf, a history of indigenous land claims in Alaska. She will present on the first of these two works in progress at the Stanford Humanities Center Feminist and Queer Colloquium on October 28, 2019.
