Unsettling Borders: O’odham (Indigenous) Land as Intervention and Analytic
Thursday, Apr 21, 2022 | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
VIRTUAL EVENT - ZOOM WEBINAR
CRG Forum Series – Spring 2022
A conversation with Sherally Munshi (Georgetown Law) and Fantasia Painter ((Salt River Pima-Maricopa) UC Davis). This event will explore the colonial dimensions of the U.S. southern border to critically examine the political stakes of border enforcement, particularly in the face of Indigenous displacement and migration (Munshi), and will position O’odham land at the center of analysis to ask how borders and borderlands are produced and negotiated by resident communities, employing vocabularies of space, place, and Indigeneity (Painter).
Hosted by CRG’s Native/Immigrant/Refugee – Crossings Research Initiative. Co-sponsored by the Berkeley Interdisciplinary Migration Initiative, Joseph A. Myers Center for Research on Native American Issues, and Native American Studies Program.
