Two Spirit and Indigenous Feminisms Lecture SeriesFebruary 20, 2014
The Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies invites you to join the first two events of its “Two Spirit and Indigenous Feminisms Lecture Series.”
Leading scholars will share their recent analytic, film, and literary contributions to the fields of queer and two-spirit indigenous studies, feminist indigenous literary criticisms, and social movement research.
On February 24, the Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies will host CSULB Women’s Studies Alumni and Lillian Robles Award Recipient, Maylei Blackwell whose recent research on indigenous women’s activism in Los Angeles builds on her prior work as documented in “Weaving in the Spaces: Transnational Indigenous Women’s Organizing and the Politics of Scale.” Her talk on Indigenous Women’s Activism will take place from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Karl Anatol Center, AS 119.
(Her paper is available here).
Then on Wednesday February 26, Dr. Gabriel Estrada will present his recent research on Two Spirit Film. Dr. Estrada is currently working on a book manuscript on the topic and will offer us a glimpse of what we can expect in his forthcoming publication. His talk will take place from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in PSY 148.
Refreshments will be available. For questions, please email email@example.com or call 415.577.5089.
