About Me

Angelika Joseph is a PhD candidate in the History and Theory of Architecture at Princeton University, where she is also affiliated with the Native American and Indigenous Studies Initiative, Program in Latin American Studies, Effron Center for the Study of America, and Center for Digital Humanities. Joseph’s dissertation examines the Red Power Movement (1969-73) as an architectural project for Indigenous sovereignty. Uniting spatial and cultural modes of analysis, this dissertation explores the strategies by which Red Power Movement activists designed social, cultural, and political transformations, weaponizing landscapes shaped by their oppressors against the state and creating new worlds within old architectural forms. In 2020, Joseph was named a Ford Foundation Predoctoral Fellow by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, and a President’s Fellow at Princeton University. Joseph is a Diversity Fellow at Princeton University, and a former Mellon Foundation Fellow and Rosenbloom Fellow at the Center of the American West at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Joseph develops public pedagogy tools for Black and Indigenous landscape history through the inaugural “Towards a People’s History of Landscape” Summer Institute for Higher Education Faculty supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities and Dumbarton Oaks. Joseph holds a BA with honors from the University of California, Davis, and previously worked in venture capital.
