A Conversation with Dr. Kim TallBear: An Indigenous Ethic of Relationality

Posted on

Kim TallBear’s forthcoming book, Disrupting Settlement, Sex and Nature: An Indigenous Logic, offers an alternative framework to such settlements and binaries—that of purposeful, responsible migration and boundary crossing (which can also be viewed as a form of critical and mindful promiscuity), or routedness through place, knowledge/disciplines, and intimate relations with both humans and landscapes. The concept of relations—rather than nature or sex—is central. This ethic of relationality will be the central point of this conversation.

Tuesday, February 23, 4 – 5:30 PM
