RS alumna selected for Young Scholars in American Religion program

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

Congratulations to RS alumna Sarah Dees (BA, 2007), who was selected to participate in the Young Scholars in American Religion program, a competitive program for early-career scholars sponsored by the Center for the Study of Religion and American Culture at IUPUI. Dees graduated with her PhD from Indiana University in 2015 and is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University. She is  working on a book manuscript entitled The Materialization of Native American Religions: Cultural Science in an Era of Assimilation. This project describes the history and legacy of government-funded research on Native American religions, arguing that academic discourse on Indigenous religions has justified legal restrictions on Native American practices.
