Re-Membering Native America (Feb 15)

February 15, 2013

pdf Re-Membering Native America: Archives, Bodies, and Communities: A Symposium

Alexander Library Teleconference Hall

169 College Avenue, New Brunwick, New Jersey

9:30 AM - 4:00 PM

What does it mean to be Indian? How does one survive, resist, and thrive? What does indigenous nationhood look like in the face of settler colonialism? Native peoples in North America have been interrogating and re-interrogating these questions for over five hundred years, producing writing and art, gestures and movements that document and perform their responses. This interdisciplinary symposium seeks to witness and analyze these responses. Leading Native Studies scholars from across the United States will present their research, paying particular attention to questions of the nature of archives, repertoires of gender and sexuality, and the dynamic valences of community.
