Speaker Series: Macey Flood on August 20, 2019
Join us for our Monthly Speaker Series in August! Our speaker in August is Macey Flood, who will be presenting on “Medicine & Territoriality in the Western Great Lakes, 1870-1900” (she will also touch on Ojibwe medicine in the 20th century). Mano a Mano started our Speaker Series as a way to engage with researchers and practitioners working with indigenous peoples on development and environmental issues. Our goal is to share and learn from each other and to support the indigenous peoples that we serve.
Macey Flood is a PhD candidate in the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine program at the University of Minnesota. Her dissertation focuses on medicine in the context of U.S. settler colonialism and Ojibwe survivance in the western Great Lakes through the nineteenth century. She also runs a project on Midwestern herbalism.
The event is free and takes place at Mano a Mano (925 Pierce Butler Route, St. Paul, MN 55104) on Tuesday, August 20th, 2019 from 6:30pm-7:45pm.
