This class explores the multiple valences of Indigenous Peoples within the genre of visual media and film with articular attention to race and gender as reflective and reflexive categories.

Weekly screenings of films, lectures and discussions will require mandatory attendance at every class meeting and within working groups. Students will develop skills to identify visual media referents, related to contemporary and digital contexts while gaining appreciation for indigenous identity history and sovereignty weekly reflection papers are required.

NATIVEAM 39: Long Live Our 4Bil. Year Old Mother: Black Feminist Praxis, Indigenous Resistance, Queer Possibility (AFRICAAM 39, CSRE 39, FEMGEN 39)

How can art facilitate a culture that values women, mothers, transfolks, caregivers, girls? How can black, indigenous, and people of color frameworks help us reckon with oppressive systems that threaten safety and survival for marginalized people and the lands that sustain us? How can these questions reveal the brilliant and inventive forms of survival that precede and transcend harmful systems toward a world of possibility? Each week, this course will call on artists, scholars, and organizers of color who clarify the urgency and interconnection of issues from patriarchal violence to environmental degradation; criminalization to legacies of settler colonialism. These same thinkers will also speak to the imaginative, everyday knowledge and creative healing practices that our forebears have used for millennia to give vision and rise to true transformation.
