Explore the history of Native Americans in New England. While we will not turn a blind eye to the impact that colonization, dispossession, and racism had on the story of Indigenous peoples in the region, we will also explore Native American resistance, adaptation, and survival under often harsh and unfavorable circumstances. Moreover, we will examine some of the colonial legacies that still shape the views and (mis-) perceptions about Indigenous peoples to this day.

Led by Christoph Strobel, a Professor of History at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. He is the author of War and Colonization in the Early American Northeast, Native Americans of New England (2021 Choice Outstanding Academic Title); 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 academic journals and in various edited collections.
