      This year's Consortium visits the lovely North Campus of the University of
      Georgia to explore new questions emerging on mixed race identity among the
      Creeks and Cherokees, through the recent work of two distinguished
      historians at work on those issues and through discussion with Native
      American scholars on the UGA faculty.

      Noted scholar of the Cherokee, Professor Theda Perdue of the University of
      North Carolina at Chapel Hill, replaces prevailing historical
      interpretations based on notions of "blood" with traditional Indian cultural
      values to explain relations among the Native Americans, Europeans, and
      Africans. A Georgia native and UGA PhD, Perdue has published a number of
      books including Cherokee Women: Gender and Cultural Change, 1700-1835 and
      Slavery and the Evolution of Cherokee Society, 1540-1866. Her new book is
      "Mixed Blood" Indians: Racial Construction in the Early South, just
      published by the University of Georgia Press.

      Noted scholar of the Creek, Professor Claudio Saunt of the University of
      Georgia, considers the emergence of an elite class of Creeks who prospered
      under the market economy in his study, A New Order of Things: Property,
      Power, and the Transformation of the Creek Indians, 1733-1816. His current
      research follows several generations of a family of Creek who intermarried
      with whites and blacks, becoming members of several racial communities in
      the 19th and 20th century South.

      The Consortium on Georgia History is a collaborative venture of the
      departments of history at the University of Georgia, Georgia State
      University, Armstrong Atlantic University, Augusta State University's Center
      for the Study of Georgia History, Kennesaw State University's Center for
      Regional History and Culture, Georgia College & State University's Center
      for Georgia Studies, and other institutions.
