Talk title: "Indigenous Feminist Interventions in Post-Traumatic Relationality"

Talk description: "Non-Indigenous conceptions of trauma have been weaponized against Indigenous communities in many neoliberal arenas; from language revitalization to social work, Western takes on the “trauma” of Indigeneity abound. In this talk, I will offer an Indigenous feminist intervention in the trauma talk, infusing the concept of relationality into the ways we strategize around Indigenous futurity."


As part of our commitment to social justice, the philosophy department has developing a 5-year series of public lectures on Race, Gender and Justice (established in 2021). For more information, please visit this website (link)
