New Directions in Indigenous Women’s History

Susana Geliga, a 3rd yr PhD history student, co-wrote an article with Dr. Margaret Jacobs titled, New Directions in Indigenous Women’s History (DIO: 10.11111468-0424.12288) which has recently been accepted into the Gender & History journal. This journal is a major international journal for research and writing on the history of gender relations, sexuality, and the semiotics of gender in a wide geographical and chronological scope. It presents works that examine changing conceptions of gender, and maps the dialogue between femininities, masculinities and their historical contexts.   
Since her thesis, ELLA DELORIA: A DAKOTA WOMAN’S JOURNEY BETWEEN AN OLD WORLD AND A NEW, which won UNL’s 2015 Lowe R & Mavis M. Folsom Distinguished Master’s Thesis Award, Susana’s research has focused on the fluidity of Indigenous women’s gender roles as well as the intergenerational transmission of traditional cultures and languages throughout the beginning phases of US assimilation policies.
