Using Science and Technology to Support Indigenous Governance
Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Wolff Conference Room, Room D1103, Albert and Vera List Academic Center, 1103 6 East 16th Street, New York, NY 10003, Room D1103
This talk discusses the burgeoning field of Indigenous Science, Technology, and Society (Indigenous STS) and the Indigenous, feminist, and queer theory informing it. It explains the cross-Canada (in part virtual) network being built to train and mentor students who, because they work on Indigenous issues, are often tied to specific places. The program is also built within a critical global Indigenous studies context that pays attention simultaneously to being locally/ regionally grounded.
Kim TallBear, Associate Professor of Native Studies at the University of Alberta.
