Announcing Our 2022 USIH Conference Keynote Speaker: Philip Deloria

On behalf of my Co-Chair Kate Jewell and the rest of the Conference Committee, I’m delighted to announce that the keynote speaker at the 2022 U.S. Intellectual History Conference will be Philip Deloria, the Leverett Saltonstall Professor of History at Harvard. One of the most distinguished scholars of Native American history working today, Prof. Deloria is the author of Playing Indian (1998), Indians in Unexpected Places (2004), and Becoming Mary Sully (2019). He is former president of both the American Studies Association and the Organization of American Historians. His keynote address will take place on Friday morning, November 4, kicking off the first full day of our conference in Boston.

And there’s still time to get your panel or paper proposals to the conference committee. The deadline is June 30. More information can be found in our call for papers. We hope to see you in Boston!
