Summer Institute in Indigenous Humanities (SIIH)

The Summer Institute in Indigenous Humanities provides training and support to undergraduate students and community partners undertaking humanities research in American Indian and Indigenous Studies. Offered three consecutive weeks over the summer, this program introduces students to Indigenous research methodologies through workshops on archives, ethnographic research, and other field-based research. As part of the program, students will work with the teaching team to develop an independent research project in Indigenous Humanities. Subsequent to the completion of the course, students will present their independent research at a research symposium later in the academic year.

This summer intensive research program will be co-instructed by Dr. Danica Miller (millerda@uw.edu) and Dr. Sara Gonzalez (https://blogs.uw.edu/gonzalsa/about/) (gonzalsa@uw.edu). 

Who is eligible? The course is open to the following students:

  • Enrolled UW students who have completed their first year
  • Incoming UW transfer students
  • Community partners with research interests in Indigenous Humanities

Summer stipends will be provided to all accepted students. 

When? The course runs from August 1-19, 2022. 

Where? We will be in residence on the UW campus and meetings will be held at the Burke Museum. Additional field trips will be scheduled with transportation provided.
