Gober Family Uncommon Fare Dinner with Professor Philip Deloria

September 26, 2018

Dear Members of the Class of 2022:

The First-Year Experience Office will host a small, private dinner at the Harvard Faculty Club on Wednesday, October 3, at 6:00 pm, at which a select group of 10 first-year students will have a chance to dine with Professor Philip Deloria, Professor of History at Harvard. If you are interested in this exceptional opportunity and can commit to attending from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, please apply.

Apply by Friday, 9/28 at 11:59 p.m.

Dr. Philip Deloria is a historian who focuses on the social, cultural, and political histories of the relations among American Indian peoples and the United States, as well as the comparative and connective histories of indigenous peoples in a global context. His most recent book, co-authored with Alexander Olson, is American Studies: A User's Guide (2017). In addition to producing, directing, and editing a PBS program entitled Eyanopapi: Heart of the Sioux, Professor Deloria is currently completing a project on American Indian visual arts of the mid-twentieth century and co-editing (with Beth Piatote) I Heart Nixon: Essays on the Indigenous Everyday. Professor Deloria received his Ph.D. in American Studies from Yale University and his B.M.E. in Music Education and M.A. in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of Colorado.

This Faculty Club dinner is part of the FYE’s Gober Family Uncommon Fare program, designed to give first-year students a chance to meet outstanding members of the Harvard community, to meet one another, and to see what is truly special about the College, all made possible by a generous gift. We certainly hope you can join us!
