20th & 21st Century and Americanist Colloquia: Beth Piatote

Event time: 
Thursday, March 26, 2020 - 4:30pm
Event description: 

The 20th & 21st Century and Americanist Colloquia welcome Beth Piatote of the University of California, Berkeley.

Beth Piatote’s current book project, building on her recent monograph Domestic Subjects: Gender, Citizenship and Law in Native American Literature (Yale 2013), explores the ways in which Native American writers have drawn upon sensory representations such as sound and synesthesia to produce a distinct legal imaginary that contests settler-colonial incursion and affirms indigenous politics and aesthetics.

This event is made possible by the Edward J. and Dorothy Clarke Kempf Fund at Yale University.
