From 20 to 25 March the department was delighted to host Dr Andrew Sturtevant of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Over the years many students from both Winchester and Wisconsin-Eau Claire have taken the opportunity to spend a semester at the other institution as part of an exchange programme. Staff from both institutions have also taken the opportunity for one week visits over the past few years.
Dr Sturtevant is an expert on Native America history during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and gave a fascinating paper on ‘Pontiac’s Other War’ to the department that week. He also spoke with various Winchester students about opportunities studying on exchange at Eau Claire and gave a guest lecture to the third year Genocide module on the Cherokee ethnic cleansing.
We hope Dr Sturtevant enjoyed his time at Winchester and we are glad that he could take time to visit us.
