Event Details

A Luther College tradition continues this year with the return of
“Paideia Texts and Issues Lecture Series.” Since 1983, Luther faculty
have presented research from a variety of disciplines, centered on a
common theme. This year the focus is on “Resistance and Resilience.”

Nov. 12 – Anna Peterson, assistant professor of history, and
David Faldet, professor of English, presents “Education and the
Ho-Chunk: Resistance and Resilience”

Peterson and Faldet willexplore the intersection of their individual
research on the Winneshiek/Ho-Chunk people who resided in northeast
Iowa. Peterson focuses on theBethany Indian Mission School near
Wittenberg, WI. Founded in 1883 by Luther College alumni, it served
Native American tribes of Wisconsin, mostly Oneida and Winnebago
(Ho-Chunk), as both a mission and a school until 1955. Faldet looks at
the nature of “survivance” in the face of forced removals in the
mid-19th century.

All lectures will take place at 7 p.m. in the Center for Faith and Life
Recital Hall with receptions to follow in Qualley Lounge. Sponsored by
the Paideia Endowment, these events are always open to the public with
no charge for admission.
