Dr. Brian Hosmer serves as the H.G. Barnard Associate Professor of Western American History at the University of Tulsa. Prior to joining TU, he served as Director of the Newberry Library’s D’Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian Studies Consortium. He previously held faculty positions at the University of Wyoming and the University of Delaware. His research interests focus on intersections between economic change and cultural identity in 20th-century Native communities. Tonight he will present his talk, “Indian Work is Cooperative Work, or is it? Working and Cooperating on the Wind River Reservation, Wyoming.”
The McFarlin Fellows is the oldest currently active giving society affiliated with McFarlin Library. These individuals have generously chosen to support the growth of the library’s Department of Special Collections and University Archives with an annual commitment of $2,000, and in so doing highlight and encourage intellectual development in the Tulsa community. Gifts are used to fund acquisitions of rare books and manuscripts, while also funding an annual lecture series that features significant scholars and authors of the day, such as Dr. Hosmer. The McFarlin Fellows generally attend formal dinners with a speaker three times a year, and may also participate in other special events.
These events are not open to the public. For further information please see the Fellows’ web page.
