Eadington Lecture Preview: Indian Gaming, American Anxiety

Eadington Fellow Laurie Arnold has written an interesting blog post on her upcoming lecture: "Indian Gaming, American Anxiety" which will take place on March 18 at 3pm in the Goldfield Room, Lied Library.

On her work in Special Collections, Arnold writes: "While using the Katherine Spilde Papers on tribal gaming in the UNLV Special Collections, I realized that the materials represent a real-time snapshot of the questions that emerged as Indian gaming grew from the early 1990s through the first decade of the 20th century. Spilde held several professional positions during the time she collected these materials, and in each position she researched the politics and economics of tribal gaming."
