Other Special Events in the Department of History

  • Historical and Native perspectives on Killers of the Flower Moon

    Illinois State University’s Department of History will present a panel discussion focusing on Native American and historical perspectives on the Oscar-nominated film Killers of the Flower Moon.

  • Listen to Dr. Barbara Fields delivers the lecture “Is Race Identity?”

    Dr. Barbara Fields, professor of history at Columbia University in New York, will focus on the expression “racial identity,” which Fields says typically does not strike most people as a contradiction in terms, but it should. Race is not an identity but a hostile identification imposed by others. For example, it was attached to persons of African descent as a way to account for their enslavement in the midst of a polity where most people took freedom for granted.

  • History-Social Sciences Teacher Symposium

    This in-person symposium is open to all Illinois elementary, middle, and secondary level History-Social Science educators, community educators, pre-service and student teachers

  • History Workshop, Rethinking History, with Dr. Joel Sipress

    Dr. Joel Sipress, Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Superior will pose questions as to the purpose of the introductory college history course, offer a perspective on how the introductory course might be conceptualized, and engage faculty and staff in a collaborative discussion of what such a reconceptualization might look like in practice.
