ARTH 613 Special Topics in Indigenous Art and Art History: Indigenous Feminisms

  • Monday, 11:45 a.m. – 2:45 p.m.
  • Room EV-3.760
  • Dr. Michelle McGeough

Presently, we are witnessing a growing body of scholarship by Native American feminist scholars and their allies that have focused on exposing the connections between settler colonialism and heteropatiarchy.  In particular, they have examined how colonialism has transformed and altered all Indigenous structures including gender relations as well as the status and power of Indigenous women.  In this seminar, we will explore Indigenous scholars and artists from the settler nation-states of Canada,  the United States,  and as well as Latin America, who posit Indigenous feminisms as being based on the revitalization of Indigenous institutions and practices. We will also examine the possibilities this trajectory offers in terms of decolonization.
