Clyde Ellis selected for NEH Summer Seminar

Clyde Ellis, a professor of history, has been selected to attend a four-week National Endowment for the Humanities summer seminar on the ethnohistory of Indians in the American South. The seminar will meet at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and will include fieldwork in the Eastern Cherokee, Catawba, and Lumbee communities.

Ellis's seminar research project will examine the use of local native languages in contemporary powwow singing as an example of how young Native people are constructing and negotiating new and dynamic ideas about identity and culture.
