Dr. Kim TallBear, University of Alberta.
Making Love and Relations Beyond Settler Sexualities
When: Wednesday February 24th, noon
Where: Jack Bell Room 028
This talk—a developing theoretical intervention—will serve as a provocation to think through the entangled politics of ethical non-monogamy, nurturing extended family and tribal kin formations, and critiques of marriage as integral to the settler colonial project. This examination conceives of indigenous kin making—even that which is seen as disrupted by colonialism and trauma—as a set of practices that are potentially more “environmentally sustainable,” as that is broadly conceived. The speaker invites the audience to think through these entangled issues with her.
