EventKeeper : Tell a Friend
Beyond the Mayflower and 1620

Thursday November 4, 2021
7:00 PM until 8:30 PM


Christoph Strobel will present an interpretive history of the indigenous peoples of New England. This talk will not attempt to provide a comprehensive history, but, rather, by focusing on a few select case studies, historic sketches, and biographies from throughout New England, we will explore the story of Native Americans in the region. While this talk will not turn a blind eye to the horrendous impact that colonitzation, dispossession, and racism had on the lives of indigenous peoples in New England, it will also emphasize Native American resistance, adaptation, and survival under often harsh and unfavorable circumstances.

Christoph Strobel is Professor of History at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, where he teaches various courses in global and Native American history. His most recent book is Native Americans of New England. He is also the author of the Global Atlantic: 1400-1900, The Testing Grounds of Modern Empire, and, co-author with Alice Nash, of Daily Life of Native Americans from Post -Columbian through Nineteenth-Century America. Christoph has also published three books on immigration and his scholarly essays appear in many acedemic journals and in various edited collections.
