Land and Knowledge: Indigeneity, Survivance and Healing

Building on the theme of indigeneity, survivance and healing we invite researchers, activists, educators, practitioners, community members and youth to situate their work within the historical and current sociopolitical realities of colonization being endemic in society and its connections to anti-indigeneity, anti-blackness, anti-brownness, anti-immigration, anti-LGTBQ and anti-dis/ability rhetoric; discourses deeply rooted in the social fabric of the U.S. We encourage papers and creative works that provide analyses anchored in a critical examination of place, land, race and racialization. We invite qualitative and quantitative empirical research presentations, performances, and conceptual papers that aim to help explain how education works to disrupt and/or maintain various types of oppression including, but not limited to, racialization, patriarchy, heteronormativity, ableism, islamophobia, linguicism, capitalism, nationalism, and other forms of systematic oppression rampant in society. We also encourage papers/creative works that engage key CRT and TribalCrit concepts highlighted in conceptions of race/racialization and space, and how notions of colonization, imperialism, sovereignty, assimilation, and the desire for material gain intersect in various spaces where survivance and healing can occur.
