This course offers a survey of critical Indigenous studies-contemporary transnational and transdisciplinary theorymaking from a new and emerging generation of Indigenous scholars. Critical Indigenous studies make crucial interventions in our collective understanding of race, gender, politics, sexuality, identity, democracy, dis/ability, migration, human rights, and multiculturalism. Centering the fact that Indigenous knowledge is dynamic and pertinent to issues of universal existential concern, this course aims to develop a broad and deep appreciation for Indigenous ways of knowing, doing, and relating that facilitate the development of kinship networks and fluidarities that transcend colonial traumas, borders, terrains, and fictions.
