“Beyond Removal: Indians, States, and Sovereignties in the American South, c.1812-1860”
Jane Dinwoodie is a DPhil candidate in American history at Oxford University. Her dissertation focuses on the many communities of indigenous Southerners who avoided Indian Removal during the first half of the nineteenth century. By ranging across the region and its policies, it seeks to provide the first account of non-removal as a massive cross-regional phenomenon which affected not only indigenous Southerners, but also American officials, local residents, and continental dynamics of sovereignty, state development, and empire.
