UNM History Department doctoral candidate Michelle M. Martin has been selected as one of five short term research fellows at the Helmerich Center for American Research at the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma for 2019-2020. The Helmerich Center for American Research provides $2,500 short term fellowships for scholars whose research utilizes materials from HCAR’s extensive collections and those at the McFarlin Library Special Collections at the University of Tulsa.  Martin’s research, that probes the intersections of race, ethnicity, and power in the Indian Territory from 1870-1898 relies upon archival holdings in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Washington, D.C. HCAR stresses the importance of collections based research and  attracts scholars from across the U.S. and internationally to work with their extensive and diverse array of primary sources ranging from manuscripts, correspondence, official documents, artwork, and photographs. Martin will be traveling to Tulsa to conduct dissertation research for two weeks over the summer months. Congratulations Michelle!
