Mortimer Featured in DHI Public Scholars Program Blog

Mike Mortimer

History graduate student Loren Michael Mortimer was featured by the Davis Humanities Institute for his work with the Mellon Public Scholars Program. The feature can be found here. In 2016, Mortimer was selected to participate in the inaugural cohort of Mellon Public Scholars. Supervised by Professor Elisabeth Rose Middleton from the Native American Studies department and in partnership with the Akwesasne Cultural Center at Akwesasne Mohawk Territory, he created an interactive map of the reservation's indigenous history and cultural heritage sites. This digital humanities project aligns with Mortimer's research, which focuses on Native American environmental history, exploring the evolution of the St. Lawrence River from a pre-contact indigenous borderland into an international boundary between the United States and Canada
