The Shifting Borders of Race and Identity: A Research and Teaching Project on the Native American and African American Experience: "Shifting Borders" will bring scholars from doctoral universities, tribal colleges, community colleges, and historically black colleges and universities to the borderlands between Native American and African American studies, where they will collaboratively develop novel approaches to research and teaching that will contribute significantly to our understanding of race, ethnicity, culture, and identity. This ambitious project builds on a foundation of thriving programs at KU in Indigenous Nations, African and African American, and American studies and at HINU in American Indian studies.
