Performing Archive

Contextualizing Curtis, The North American Indian, and Race

Performing Archive is a project deeply invested in teaching and in demonstrating the connections between teaching and research. To that end, we invited a number of different scholars to write short contextualizing pieces designed to help students make sense of the collections gathered here. Some of the pieces are written by faculty, others by graduate and undergraduate students. Many of these are the result of our joint efforts to learn more about Curtis and his context. Each essay is short and accessible. Many raise questions or highlight areas for further study, rather than offer definitive answers. We hope you find their perspectives on Curtis, his work, and his subjects illuminating and provocative. We have a few essays still in production and we welcome proposals for additional short articles by readers.
