SAMRU’s Native Student Centre (NSC), in partnership with Mount Royal University and the Iniskim Centre, welcomes author and educator Dr. Beth Piatote who will be speaking on “Sonic Sovereignty in D’Arcy McNickle’s: The Surrounded”
Dr. Piatote is an Associate Professor of Ethnic Studies and Native American Studies at University of California at Berkeley. Dr. Piatote notes that her current book “explores the ways in which Native American writers have drawn upon sensory representations such as sound and synesthesia to produce a distinct imaginary that contests settler-colonial incursion and affirms indigenous politics and aesthetics.” (see Dr. Piatote’s biography here)
Dr. Piatote’s Research interests include: Native American literature, history, law and culture; Native American/Aboriginal literature and federal Indian law in the United States and Canada; American literature and cultural studies; Ni:mi:pu: (Nez Perce) language and literature.
All members of the MRU community are invited to come listen, learn, and participate in the final Elder/Speaker series session of the semester. Join us for a potluck lunch immediately following the presentation – everyone is welcome!
