Athletics, Obligations, and the Florida State Seminoles
Professor Andrew Frank is the Allen Morris Associate Professor of History at Florida State University.
In his talk Prof. Frank will provide an historical perspective on the often perplexing and widely misunderstood relationship between the Seminole Tribe and Florida State University. Most discussions of the topic revolve around college football and mascots, and falsely presume that Tribal considerations are either ignored or resolved financially. This talk reveals a more complex relationship, one defined largely by the Tribe and rooted in several decades of shared history.
