Tiffany C. Fryer is Cotsen Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton’s Society of Fellows and Lecturer in the Council of the Humanities and the Department of Anthropology. She investigates settler colonialism as a form of political violence and focuses especially on how such violence, the things and places it generates, and the memories that result from its experience yield collective notions of heritage and sociopolitical consciousness across time.
