Dedicated to the Native American Studies Program at Dartmouth for over half of its 40-year existence, Colin Calloway has helped bring the Program to national prominence.
MAKING A MARK
After joining the Dartmouth faculty in 1995, Calloway chaired the Native American Studies Program for twelve years, from 1997 to 2009. In 2007-08, he served as president of the American Society for Ethnohistory and in 2011 received the American Indian History Lifetime Achievement award for his work "helping Native American students and advancing the study of American Indian history."
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"Colin has helped to shape the substance and identity of Native American Studies as among the strongest, most vibrant and effective interdisciplinary programs at Dartmouth. In the process, he's helped to solidify NAS as among the preeminent academic programs in Native studies in the US." -N. Bruce Duthu, Samsom Occom Professor and Chair of Native American Studies
Calloway has written more than a dozen books, one of which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. Among his recent works, The Indian History of an American Institution captures the complex story of Dartmouth's historical and ongoing relationship with Native Americans.
