Seminar led by Dr. Kimberly Marshall (Forum Fellow & Asst Prof of Anthropology) whose current research traces the erasure of the Boise Valley people, and how this erasure informs the contemporary representational landscape of this metropolitan center of Idaho. Drawing upon her fieldwork at publicly-staged cultural festivals, this seminar will explore the concept of “representational sovereignty” and discuss ways that this type of sovereignty can be fostered through the development of inter-dependent relationships.
Readings will be distributed in advance to registered participants (OU faculty, staff, & graduate students). Space is limited. A light lunch will be provided.
12:00 - 1:30 PM. Friday, September 29, 2017.
