Dr. Brooke Bauer, Catawba scholar and USC Lancaster Professor of US History, Native American History and Culture, and Women and Gender Studies, has been named Co-Director of USCL’s Native American Studies.

“We are excited that Dr. Bauer has agreed to assist in directing Native American Studies at USC Lancaster,” said USCL Dean Walt Collins. “I am especially excited about her future contributions to curricular matters and to regional outreach and engagement. We are fortunate to have her on our faculty and in this new leadership role.”

“I am honored and thrilled that Dean Collins and Dr. Stephen Criswell have confidence in me to fill the position of Co-Director of USCL’s Native American Studies,” said Bauer. “As Co-Director, I want to contribute to the growth of Native American Studies through curriculum development and the recruitment of undergrads regionally, but especially SC Indigenous students.”

Bauer, who came to USCL in 2016 as a Visiting Professor, is a citizen of the Catawba Nation and specializes in Native American studies, US history, American Women’s history, and Native North American material culture. Bauer received her Ph.D. from the Graduate School at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in May 2016 and has published two book chapters and several book reviews.

Mellon Foundation Native American Scholars Initiative (NASI) Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the American Philosophical Society (APS) in Philadelphia for the 2020-2021 year. Open only to Native American scholars, Bauer is the first and only scholar to be chosen for this year’s prestigious residential fellowship.

During the 12-month fellowship at the ASP, Bauer will work to complete her manuscript by participating in professional development seminars and workshops, career mentoring; she also will connect and collaborate with scholars who have received other fellowships through the ASP.

During Bauer’s academic career, she has been awarded many fellowships, including awards with the Omohundro Institute at College of William & Mary; the Sallie Markham Michie US History Prize, Davie Poplar Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution; Jacob M.
