Susan will be speaking on her research that examines Native American- Euro American encounters during the colonial and early national histories of North America. Of particular interest to her is exploring history as a narrative that focuses on sites of encounter, particularly borderlands, where diverse people interacted and where identity, initially malleable, changed over time.

Susan Sleeper-Smith is a Professor of History at Michigan State University. She received a 2002-2003 research fellowship at the Newberry Library in Chicago and has written extensively on the fur trade and women in the fur trade, in both journal and book form.
