Margaret Huettl, assistant professor of history and ethnic studies, has been named a fellow of the American Council of Learned Societies. She will develop the project "Gichigami: An Anishinaabe History of Lake Superior," a history that will explore seven episodes in Gichigami's past, present, and future, bringing together environmental, cultural, and political histories.
The fellowship program supports outstanding scholarship in the humanities and interpretive social sciences that has the potential to make significant contributions within and beyond their fields. This year the program focused its support on early-career, untenured scholars.
Huettl is a scholar of Native American history and North American Wests, and her research examines Indigenous sovereignty and settler colonialism in a transnational context.
