Message from the President

January 2021

Because of the continuing risk of community transmission of the COVID-19 virus, SAR’s campus remains closed until public health authorities deem it safe for us to resume in-person events.

In March 2020 we transitioned from live events to a robust schedule of online offerings that include behind-the-scenes access to our scholars, artists, and collections.

Our online events have given us new ways to share innovative content that illuminates topics of broad public concern.  Online platforms allow us to serve our longstanding members as well as a growing global audience. With challenge comes opportunity.

Although we look forward to the day when we will again be able to meet face-to-face, I hope you will join us as we pursue SAR’s important mission by electronic means.

Audio // SAR In Conversation: Kim Martindale

SAR School for Advanced Research 47 views February 19, 2021 12:28 pm

As part of the fourth annual Creative Thought Forum, the School for Advanced Research hosts Philip J. Deloria, the Leverett Saltonstall Professor of History at Harvard University, for his talk "Lenape: Imagining the Indigenous States of America.”

Consider making a donation to SAR so that our programs can remain free of charge and accessible to a broad and diverse audience. Donate today: https://sarweb.org/donate/

About the talk: 
The 1778 Treaty of Fort Pitt contains an unusual provision: that the Delaware nation might take leadership of an Indian state, to be integrated on an equal footing with the original thirteen states into the American union. It goes without saying that the Delaware state did not come to be; it is highly likely—but perhaps not absolutely certain—that such a proposal was doomed from the start. Exploring the methodological boundaries of counterfactual history and imaginative historical fiction, this talk will consider the possibilities of an Indian state, and the consequences of what would have been—had it come to pass—a foundational commitment to a unique form of multiracial democracy.

About the speaker:
Philip J. Deloria is the Leverett Saltonstall Professor of History at Harvard University, where his research and teaching focus on the social, cultural and political histories of the relations among American Indian peoples and the United States. He is the author of several books, including Playing Indian (Yale University Press, 1998), Indians in Unexpected Places (University Press of Kansas, 2004), American Studies: A User’s Guide (University of California Press, 2017), with Alexander Olson, and Becoming Mary Sully: Toward an American Indian Abstract (University of Washington Press, 2019), as well as two co-edited books and numerous articles and chapters. Deloria received the Ph.D. in American Studies from Yale University in 1994, taught at the University of Colorado, and then, from 2001 to 2017, at the University of Michigan, before joining the faculty at Harvard in January 2018. Deloria is a trustee of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian, where he chairs the Repatriation Committee. He is former president of the American Studies Association, an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the recipient of numerous prizes and recognitions, and will serve as president of the Organization of American Historians in 2022.

Lenape: Imagining the Indigenous States of America with Philip Deloria

SAR School for Advanced Research 391 views February 17, 2021 10:46 pm

Author and SAR advisory board member Douglas Preston and biological anthropologist, Agustín Fuentes, share a conversation about the recent study of human remains found at Roopkund, a lake high in India’s Himalayan mountain range. The program will explore the mystery of who these people were, what they were doing at the lake, and how they died, and from there explore the new science of ancient DNA analyses, which is drawing a curtain back on our distant human past.

Read the December 7, 2020, New Yorker Magazine article by Douglas Preston for more on the story: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2020/12/14/the-skeletons-at-the-lake 

Please consider making a donation to SAR so that our programs can remain free of charge and accessible to a broad and diverse audience. 

https://sarweb.org/donate/

About the speakers:

Douglas Preston is the author or co-author of more than forty books, among them the non-fiction works The Lost City of the Monkey God, named by the New York Times as a notable book of the year, and The Monster of Florence, as well as the best-selling Pendergast novels (in collaboration with Lincoln Child). He writes for the New Yorker and National Geographic, worked as an editor at the American Museum of Natural History, and taught non-fiction writing at Princeton University. Preston currently serves as a member of SAR’s advisory board as well as the President of the Authors Guild, the nation’s largest and oldest association of authors and journalists.

Agustin Fuentes is a professor Anthropology at Princeton University. His research focuses on the biosocial, delving into the entanglement of biological systems with the social and cultural lives of humans, our ancestors, and a few of the other animals with whom humanity shares close relations. From chasing monkeys in jungles and cities, to exploring the lives of our evolutionary ancestors, to examining human health, behavior, and diversity across the globe, Professor Fuentes is interested in both the big questions and the small details of what makes humans and our close relations tick. His current projects include exploring cooperation, creativity, and belief in human evolution, multispecies anthropologies, evolutionary theory and processes, and engaging race and racism. His books include Why We Believe: Evolution and the Human Way of Being (Yale University Press/Templeton Press, 2019), and The Creative Spark: how imagination made humans exceptional.

The Arroyo Hondo Pueblo Collection Finds a New Home

In 1970 former SAR president Douglas Schwartz began test excavations at the fourteenth-century Pueblo site of Arroyo Hondo, located approximately five miles south of Santa Fe. Earlier this year, SAR made the decision to transfer its only archaeological collection to the Center for New Mexico Archaeology, the state repository for such collections, where it will be able to receive more specialized care.
