Current Research : The changing role of Indian women in the colonial fur trade

Bio

Karen Hines earned her bachelor's degree from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1977 and worked as journalist and in hospital and university media relations and public relations before entering W&M. Her thesis explored work as a possible factor in the decision of white female captives to remain with Indians rather than return to colonial community life. For her dissertation, she is studying the changing role of Indian women in the colonial fur trade. She weaves on an enormous floor loom to keep from unraveling.
