Contemporary Writers Series: Anton Treuer

The Contemporary Writers Series invites well-known authors to perform from their most recent work on campus, or virtually. The purpose is to connect creatives, inspire students through Writing Workshops, and learn from the authors’ literary achievements whether in Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, or a hybrid form.

Season 26 of the Contemporary Writers Series will feature Native Voices in Literature.

Dr. Anton Treuer (pronounced troy-er) is Professor of Ojibwe at Bemidji State University and author of many books. He has a B.A. from Princeton University and an M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota. He is Editor of the "Oshkaabewis" (pronounced o-shkaah-bay-wis) Native Journal, the only academic journal of the Ojibwe language. Dr. Treuer has presented all over the U.S. and Canada and in several foreign countries on Everything You Wanted to Know About Indians But Were Afraid to Ask, Cultural Competence & Equity, Strategies for Addressing the “Achievement” Gap, and Tribal Sovereignty, History, Language, and Culture. 

Anton will perform on February 9, 2023, at 6:00 p.m. in the Kretschmer Recital Hall in the Art & Music Center on the campus of Aquinas College. This event is free and open to the public.
