Indigenous Literatures, Social Justice, and the Decolonial Library

 

 

The work of Indigenous writers is increasingly influential in and beyond the literary world, from recognition through prominent literary prizes like the Governor General's Literary Award and the Griffin Prize to major film and theatre adaptations and collaborations, and from participation in resource extraction protest to activism around cultural appropriation and violence against Indigenous women and girls. Yet many librarians remain unsure of how best to engage Indigenous literatures and knowledge in ways that are both robust and respectful. This webinar will reflect on the settler-colonial legacies of libraries in North America while considering a model of the justice-centred "decolonial library" and its significance to Indigenous and settler readers alike.
