Statement of Research:
Brooke Linsenbardt is a third year doctoral student working with Dr. Angela Pulley Hudson and specializes in American Indian history and women’s and gender studies. Her dissertation research looks at how indigenous women have created and participated in educational activism through the organization, establishment, and running of survival schools and youth and community non-governmental organizations in the mid-to-late twentieth century. Specifically, these institutions focused on protecting, reclaiming, and revitalizing indigenous knowledges, cultures, and sovereignty rights. Brooke also feels strongly about scholar activism and community engagement.
