Daniel Mandell, professor of history, has received the Indian Rights Association Fellowship in Native American studies. The Fellowship will fund a month of work in the IRA Records at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. This is part of his research project studying how American policymakers and Native leaders viewed fundamental issues of tribal sovereignty and Indian rights.

Heidi Cook, assistant professor of art and director of the University Gallery, published a chapter in a new book out from the University of Alabama Press. The book “Portraits of Remembrance: Painting, Memory, and the First World War” includes Cook’s chapter “Maksimilijan Vanka’s ‘Our Mothers’ and the Croatian Memory of the First World War.” Coincidentally, this edited volume also happens to be dedicated to Dr. Harold Orel, father of Sara Orel, professor of art history and colleague of Cook’s at Truman.
