Angela Pulley Hudson

Angela Pulley Hudson is Associate Professor of History at Texas A&M University, where she joined the faculty after receiving her Ph.D. in American Studies from Yale University in 2007. She specializes in American Indian history, the 19th-century U.S. South, the representation of American Indians in popular culture, and the intersection of American Indian and African American lives. She has held fellowships from the Newberry Library, the American Philosophical Society, and the American Antiquarian Society, among others. She is the author ofCreek Paths and Federal Roads: Indians, Settlers, and Slaves and the Making of the American South (Chapel Hill: UNC, 2010) which considers the development of the American South by examining travel within and between southeastern Indian nations and the southern states, placing indigenous perspectives squarely at the center of southern history.  Her forthcoming book, Real Native Genius: Okah Tubbee, Laah Ceil, and the Limits of Nineteenth-Century Indianness (UNC Press, 2015), examines the lives of an ex-slave and a white Mormon divorcee who became famous Indian performers during the antebellum period.  At Texas A&M, she convenes the multi-disciplinary Indigenous Studies Working Group, which hosts regular workshops, speakers, and artistic events.  She was recently awarded the Ray A. Rothrock ’77 Fellowship from the College of Liberal Arts and was delighted to help secure the College’s co-sponsorship of the annual meeting of the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association (ATX 2014).
