In this Break This Down, Hutchinson discusses the historical and cultural issues raised in cataloging and exhibiting America’s indigenous cultural treasures.

For this Father’s Day edition of “Break This Down,” history professor Nara Milanich shares some fascinating stories about parentage from her new book, Paternity: The Elusive Quest for the Father (June 10), which explores the social and political constructs that have been built around the idea of fatherhood.

This spring break, professor of history Nara Milanich and students provided pro bono help in Dilley, Texas, for her course, Seeking Asylum, a credited, experiential learning experience that gives students the opportunity to explore the political crisis surrounding asylum-seeking families at the U.S.-Mexico border.
