Siobhan Senier, professor of English, is the 2019 recipient of the Lindberg Award, given annually to the outstanding teacher-scholar in the College of Liberal Arts. Appointed to the faculty in 2000, Senier focuses on Native American literature, women's studies, sustainability and environmental studies, disability studies, and digital humanities. Her books include “Dawnland Voices: An Anthology of Indigenous Writing from New England” (University of Nebraska Press, 2014), which serves as a model for community-responsive scholarship and establishes Senier as one of the most authoritative scholars on Northeast Indigenous writing. The book’s innovative digital companion,, is both a literary magazine and an archive of Native American literature from New England. Senier is currently finishing “Sovereignty and Sustainability: Indigenous New England Literary Stewardship in the 20th and 21st Centuries,” to be published by University of Nebraska Press, a book that unites Indigenous studies with ecocriticism and sustainability.

The annual Gary Lindberg Award was established by the College of Liberal Arts in 1986 in memory of Professor Gary Lindberg of the Department of English. This lecture is free and open to the public.
