kim marshall boise festival

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.

Fall 2016 Events

OU_Humanities_Forum_Fall_2016_Calendar_of_Events

Spring 2016

In its inaugural year 2015-2016 the Humanities Forum hosted an exciting series of programming for OU faculty, staff, students, and the Norman/Oklahoma community. In addition to a second digital humanities symposium on February 1st, our events this spring were related to “The Humanities & the Environment,” the center’s first annual interdisciplinary theme. There was a special focus on climate ethics, urban environmental change, the landscape of the American West, indigenous environmental justice, and the 5th anniversary of Fukushima (and the 30th anniversary of Chernobyl) as well as the visual, musicological, and racial dimensions of environmental topics.

To see individual event programming, please see 2015-2016 Events: The Humanities & the Environment.
