“From Nunavut to Wallmapu: Indigenous Cultural Revitalization and Inter-American Studies”

A brown bag lunch session with Hannah Burdette, California State University, Chico.

October 11 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

“Visibilizar/Visualizar: Poetic Knowledge and the Radical Imagination in Contemporary Abiayala”

From the Idle No More movement in Canada and the Zapatista uprising in Mexico to the Water and Gas Wars in Bolivia and the Mapuche movement in Chile, the turn of the twenty-first century has witnessed a notable surge in indigenous political action and literary production. Whether produced in Native languages, in the dominant European language, or both, indigenous literature forms an integral part of the struggle for cultural and intellectual sovereignty. This presentation explores the intersection between poetics and politics within that context, arguing that literature serves both to visibilizar (to render visible subjugated bodies of knowledge) and to visualizar (to envision alternatives to modernity/coloniality).

October 11 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
