James F. Brooks is an American historian whose work on slavery, captivity and kinship in the Southwest Borderlands has been honored with several major national awards, including he Bancroft Prize, the Frederick Jackson Turner Prize and the Frederick Douglass Prize.  He is formerPresident of the School for Advanced Research in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

 

An interdisciplinary scholar of the indigenous and colonial past, he has held professorial appointments at the University of Maryland, UC Santa Barbara, and UC Berkeley, as well as fellowships at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and in 2000–2001, at the SAR itself. The recipient of more than a dozen national awards for scholarly excellence, his 2002 book Captives & Cousins: Slavery, Kinship and Community in the Southwest Borderlands focused on the traffic in women and children across the region as expressions of intercultural violence and accommodation. He extends these questions most recently through an essay on the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Pampas borderlands of Argentina in his co-edited advanced seminar volume Small Worlds: Method, Meaning, and Narrative in Microhistory from SAR Press.

IUPUI Arts & Humanities Institute

Established in 2012, the IUPUI Arts and Humanities Institute supports campus-wide attainment of excellence in research and creative activity in the arts and humanities. 

The IAHI showcases and promotes the major intellectual and scholarly contributions that IUPUI faculty members from across the disciplines are making in the arts and humanities.  It serves individual faculty members, groups, and interdisciplinary teams through grant programs, workshops, and research collaborations.  Further, the IAHI encourages experiential and service learning opportunities for undergraduates in academic programs across campus.  

As an urban institute, the IAHI works closely with the central Indiana community, serving as a liaison between local institutions, residents, and IUPUI.  The IAHI fosters ongoing partnerships and ventures that advance arts and humanities endeavors both on campus and in the city.  It works with Indianapolis’ diverse publics to create engaging new programming and forums for dialogue, creativity, and experiment.

The IAHI seeks to become a national model for an urban-based arts and humanities institute that is both a leader in academic research and creative activity and an active participant in its community.
