Land and Knowledge: Indigeneity, Suvivance, and Healing
May 30- June 1, 2018
University of New Mexico
Building on the theme of indigeneity, survivance and healing we invite researchers, activists, educators, practitioners, community members and youth to situate their work within the historical and current sociopolitical realities of colonization being endemic in society and its connections to anti-indigeneity, anti-blackness, anti-brownness, anti-immigration, antiLGTBQ and anti-dis/ability rhetoric; discourses deeply rooted in the social fabric of the U.S. We encourage papers and creative works that provide analyses anchored in a critical examination of place, land, race and racialization. We invite qualitative and quantitative empirical research presentations, performances, and conceptual papers that aim to help explain how education works to disrupt and/or maintain various types of oppression including, but not limited to, racialization, patriarchy, heteronormativity, ableism, islamophobia, linguicism, capitalism, nationalism, and other forms of systematic oppression rampant in society. We also encourage papers/creative works that engage key CRT and TribalCrit concepts highlighted in conceptions of race/racialization and space, and how notions of colonization, imperialism, sovereignty, assimilation, and the desire for material gain intersect in various spaces where survivance and healing can occur.

Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Decolonizing Higher Education Canada & South Africa: Due January 15, 2018
This exciting dual-site research project is a comparative study of student led/directed efforts to decolonise/Indigenise higher education in Canada and South Africa. Sparked by the University of Winnipeg’s Indigenous Course Requirement, and South Africa’s widespread #FeesMustFall protests, this project seeks to comparatively investigate ways students in higher education are narrating, resisting and challenging colonial legacies in their unique contexts. This project explores ways that students are reimagining and engaging with their own education to develop emergent spaces that challenge violence and insecurity related to colonial legacies.
Reporting to the Director, the Educational Developer (Indigenous Curriculum and Ways of Knowing) will be responsible for planning, implementing and evaluating programs and services to support the professional teaching development of Teaching Assistants, Graduate Students, Post-Doctoral Fellows, Faculty Members and educational support professionals in integrating Indigenous knowledge and ways of knowing into courses and programs. Responsibilities include the development and delivery of professional teaching development programming on Indigenous knowledge, ways of knowing, and anti-colonial training at the individual, unit, Department and Faculty levels. The incumbent will also facilitate consultations with educators and educational support professionals to build capacity and provide leadership in the area of Indigenous curriculum development, including Indigenous knowledge, ways of knowing and Indigenous pedagogies across the university.
