Abstract
Presented by SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement. Supported by UBC First Nations Studies Program, SFU's Office for Aboriginal Peoples and SFU's Institute for the Humanities. Red Skin, White Masks is a work of critically engaged political theory that challenges the now commonplace assumption that settler-colonization can be reconciled through a process of cultural recognition and accommodation. In light of this colonial impasse, Coulthard sets out to explore a radically decolonial politics that is less oriented around attaining an affirmative form of recognition and institutional accommodation by the colonial-state and society, and more about critically revaluing, reconstructing and redeploying Indigenous cultural practices in ways that seek to prefigure radical alternatives to the symbolic and structural violence that continues to dispossess our nations of lands, political authority, and lives.Panelists include: Rita Kaur Dhamoon, Sarah Hunt, Jarrett Martineau, Matt Hern
