On October 13, Director of Outreach & Strategy Corrie Roe and Director of Cultural Affairs for the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohicans Monique Tyndall (Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohicans) will present about Local Contexts as part of the second annual conference of Rethinking Place: Bard-on-Mahicantuck.
The conference will focus on “Indigenous Research Methods & Practice in the Liberal Arts: Refusal, Creation, & Intersectionality.” A special focus will be given to practices of research refusal with the work of Audra Simpson, and research-as-creation, particularly through musical performance, workshops in working with plants as natural fabric dye, and the re-creation and amplification of narrative through Wikipedia edit-a-thons. Cross-disciplinary collaborations encourage thoughtful conversations about why, and how, individual and institutional research practices need to shift.
The conference will be held October 12-14 at the Bard College campus in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, United States.
