Native FEWS Alliance Distinguished Speaker Series
Addressing urgent FEWS challenges in Indigenous communities
The dual vision of the Native FEWS Alliance (the Alliance) is to build a highly skilled Native American (NA) STEM workforce at the nexus of Food, Energy and Water and to co-innovate and deploy Indigenous place-based FEWS education and community partnerships.
The February 8th seminar speaker will be Kim Tallbear, Professor, Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Indigenous People, Technoscience and Society. The presentation will be delivered via Zoom and at Anthony Hall (Native American Student Development) at the University of California, Berkeley. This talk highlights how in shifting academic systems and spaces, we find opportunities to newly center Native Studies theory and Indigenous peoples’ analytical frameworks (as well as feminist and queer theory analyses) to disrupt traditional knowledge silos and hierarchies.
Sponsored by Native American Student Development, Joseph A. Myers Center for Research on Native American Issues, American Indian Graduate Program, the Native Fews Alliance and the Multicultural Community Center
