Event Details

Humanities Lectures and Discussions focusing on the Indigenous history of NEPA offered as a part of the “Scranton’s Story, Our Nation’s Story” project.

“Removal and the Right to Remain in the United States,” featuring scholar Samantha Seeley.

Samantha Seeley, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of History at the University of Richmond and author. Her book, Race, Removal, and the Right to Remain: Migration and the Making of the Early United States, highlights early efforts at U.S. nation building and the use of migration to construct a white republic. Situating the struggles of Native and Black Americans into the larger story of the early U.S, Seeley argues for a more inclusive way to tell the story of forced removal and its implications on early U.S. statehood.
