Lecture by Aboriginal Scholar Dr. Sarah Hunt at GRSJ UBC

On Wednesday, November 4th from 12-1pm will be Lecture by Dr. Sarah Hunt titled ‘Embodying Self-Determination: resisting violence’. In this talk, Sarah will argue that the erasure of trans and Two-Spirit people is an ongoing form of violence which is integrally connected to the violent manifestations of colonial heteropatriarchy in the lives of Indigenous women and girls. Across these sites and scales of gendered epistemic and material violence, Sarah will discuss the decolonial imperative to advance Indigenous gender-based analyses that foster the agency and self-determination of all our relations.

Where: the Liu Institute Multipurpose room. Lunch will be provided with an RSVP! However folks are welcome to attend even without an RSVP.
