Abstract: 

Presented by SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement as part of Vancouver New Music's Alternative Energies: Sound and Sustainability Events in the Community.

Dylan Robinson is a Stó:lō scholar and Banting postdoctoral fellow in the First Nations Studies Program at UBC. His current research project, titled Sensate Sovereignty: Indigenous Public Arts and Artistic Activism, documents the history of contemporary Indigenous public art across North America. 

This talk examines the space between classical and Indigenous musical forms, and the attendant politics of recognition in such collaborative processes that often celebrates Indigenous inclusion at the cost of political engagement.
