Danielle Stubbe

Danielle Stubbe is a doctoral candidate in the modern intellectual and cultural history of the United States. Her dissertation project, tentatively titled “Patterns and Patrons of Culture: Midcentury Cultural Anthropological Subjects, Materials, and Knowledge in Motion, 1940–1980,” interweaves the midcentury histories of the advent of competing social scientific concepts of culture for American anthropologists, the institutional settings that circulated and funded their work, and their living research subjects from indigenous communities in the United States. Against a backdrop of cultural politics in the 1960s and 70s, she follows cultural information and materials as they moved between American Indian communities and those whose professional or institutional status depended on them. Danielle works primarily with Dr. Sarah Igo.
