Georgia historian to deliver talk at WCU

A historian and author from the University of Georgia who specializes in Native American history will speak at 7 p.m., Sept. 27, at Western Carolina University in Room 130 of the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center.

Claudio Saunt will address the topic “Beyond the Revolution: North America in 1776” during his presentation. Saunt is associate director of the Institute of Native American Studies at the Georgia campus in Athens. A focus of his work is the indigenous peoples of the Southeast and is the author of two award-winning books. Saunt’s talk at WCU will be based on his forthcoming book, America in 1776, which examines the history of eight communities outside the 13 Anglo-American colonies in the year of American independence. WCU’s Department of History and Cherokee Studies Program are sponsoring the program.
