Invitation to Keynote Address: Cooperstown Symposium on Baseball

Members of the SUNY Oneonta community are invited to attend the keynote address of the Cooperstown Symposium on Baseball and American Culture. The Symposium, now in its 30th year, is co-sponsored by SUNY Oneonta and the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Dr. Carla Hayden, Librarian of Congress, will deliver this year’s Symposium keynote address on Wednesday, May 30 at 1 p.m. in the Grandstand Theater at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. Dr. Hayden is the first woman and the first African American to hold the position of Librarian of Congress.

To reserve a seat, please contact Bill Simons, symposium co-director, at William.Simons@Oneonta.Edu. Seating is limited so RSVP as soon as possible.

Given Cooperstown parking and picking up an attendee badge in the Library of the Hall of Fame, early arrival is recommended.

Brian Haley publishes new research article

As part of his continuing scholarship on people and communities who adopt Native American identities despite lacking the ancestry or affiliation such claims are expected to entail, Brian Haley (Anthropology) has published a new research article, “Craig Carpenter and the neo-Indians of LONAI,” in the American Indian Quarterly (Spring 2018). The article addresses how Carpenter became a foundational neo-Indian in the 1950s by merging metaphysical spirituality, political activism, and building a network of like-minded self-described “traditionalists.”
