Elaine Stavro Distinguished Visiting Scholar
New Directions For Environmental Justice: Treaty Relations And Artistic Movements For Decolonial Futures

Monday, October 30, 2023 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

At this presentation, Dr. Wiebe will explore the key themes of her book Life Against States of Emergency. It takes us back to the Idle No More movement, highlighting Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence's significant ceremonial fast of 2012–13. At the core of the book lies the question that Chief Spence posed to the Canadian public: What does it truly mean to be in a treaty relationship today? Through extensive community-engaged research with members of the Attawapiskat Nation and drawing from disciplines such as critical discourse analysis, ecofeminist and Indigenous Studies, as well as art, activism, and storytelling, the speaker will reveal how the book advances a transformative approach to treaty relationships, grounded in the lived experiences of Indigenous communities.
