Voices on Campus is a new AIIS initiative commenced in Fall 2015 to showcase the exemplary scholarly and community work being done by MSU faculty, staff, graduate students, undergraduate students, community members, elders, youth and others who are part of MSU's Native community. With so many important ideas happening at MSU, why not share that in an open and welcoming way?
In Fall 2015, we saw well-attended talks given by Prof. Mindy Morgan, AIIS Pre-doctoral Fellow Aikwe Cornell, and PhD Candidate Adam Haviland. In Spring 2016, we held talks by Prof. Kyle Powys Whyte, Prof. Laura Smith, and Prof. Rocío Quispe Agnoli. The 2016-2017 academic year will bring additional talks by other members of the AISP community.
