Red Erotic: the fall and rise of Indigenous Erotica
In the realm of Indigenous erotics, re-imagining encompasses acts of nonconformity, resistance and subversion. These are alternative ways of envisioning the past, present and future, and Indigenous writers and artists are generating new landscapes and new possibilities. This talk presents Indigenous erotics as a state of re-imagining the corporeal coalescence of our sexualities, genders, histories, memories and emotions, and functions as a powerful decolonizing mechanism.
Presented in conjunction with Tipi Confessions (Good Will Social Club, October 17) with partners Winnipeg Public Library, University of Manitoba (Institute for the Humanities), and the University of Winnipeg Library.
Dr. Tracy Bear is Assistant Professor with the Faculties of Native Studies and Women’s & Gender Studies at the University of Alberta. She is a Nehiyaw’iskwew (Cree woman) and member of the Montreal Lake Cree Nation. Poster
