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.
