Dee Garceau, associate professor of history at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tenn., will speak at 7 p.m. in the Hager Auditorium of MSU's Museum of the Rockies. The event is free and open to the public.
Garceau has said the American West was like a laboratory of gender, revealing ways that social identities, economic life and political life were created and contested. She also sees powwows as public arenas for communicating unity and diversity in American Indian life.
The lecture is sponsored by the Museum of the Rockies and MSU's Department of History, Philosophy and Religious Studies.
