CANCELLED: An Anishinaabe Politics of the International: Odaenuah, Akina, miniwaa Gchi’naaknigewin

October 18, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

CANCELLED: Due to unforeseen circumstances, this talk has been cancelled.

Indigenous thought and agency have long been excluded from the discipline of International Relations (IR). Even with the turn towards “decolonization” few IR scholars are engaging with Indigenous or settler colonial frameworks. It is very likely that the discipline is irredeemable. Amid this realization Indigenous thinkers are re-articulating alternatives to IR theory’s orthodox and critical impoverishment. Building on this movement, this presentation offers counter-conceptualizations of the state, sovereignty and anarchy in pursuit of new/old visions of Indigenous futurity.
