UNLV University Libraries Special Collections & Archives and the Center for Gaming Research welcomes our latest Eadington Fellow, Yale Belanger, professor of Political Science at the University of Lethbridge in the province of Alberta, Canada. Belanger is a member of the Royal Society of Canada, College of New Scholars, Artists, and Scientists, author of the book Gambling with the Future, and editor of First Nations Gaming in Canada.

He will be using the Katherine Spilde Papers (MS- 00092) to explore how tribal community leaders originally envisioned utilizing gaming revenues to fund cultural investments such as language retention or elders’ programs, and whether they and their fellow community members assigned cultural investments a greater value than economic investments.

Please join us for his lecture on Friday, May 31 at 3 p.m. in the Goldfield Room, Lied Library, on the UNLV campus.
