ULM’s Carpenter part of annual lecture series in New York state

An assistant professor of history at the University of Louisiana at Monroe presented “Kinship and Gender Terms in Anglo-Native Diplomacy” Feb. 27, as part of the annual Cabin Fever lecture series at Old Fort Niagara in western New York state.

Dr. Roger Carpenter also signed copies of his book, The Renewed, the Destroyed, and the Remade: The Three Thought Worlds of the Iroquois and the Huron, 1609-1650, following the lecture. The New York Council for the Humanities underwrote the presentation.

Old Fort Niagara is a National Historic Landmark and New York State Historic Site offering an original military architecture and fortifications from the 18th Century and the 19th Century. The lecture series is offered every year, along with other living history programs, historical exhibits and collections.

Carpenter’s teaching background includes courses in Native American history, Colonial America, Revolutionary America, the American West and the U.S. survey. He has also published articles in Pennsylvania History: A Journal of Mid-Atlantic Studies, The Journal of Early American Wars and Armed Conflicts and the Michigan Historical Review.
