Dr. Adcock was named a 2018-19 Public Engagement Fellow by the Whiting Foundation – an honor to recognize scholars who work to champion the role of humanities in enriching public life – in support of his work in the Snowbird Cherokee community documenting the history of a Bureau of Indian Affairs school. Dr. Adcock researches, publishes and speaks on a wide variety of topics including American Indian education, cultural representation, and indigenous methodologies.

      Informal discussion and refreshments will follow the presentation.
