About the event

This lecture will commemorate the fifteenth anniversary of Linda Tuhiwai Smith’s trail-blazing Decolonizing Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoples (1999). In its first edition, Decolonizing Methodologies claimed space for indigenous research through critiquing western knowledge creation as a monocultural enterprise and by affirming indigenous knowledge systems in research practice. In its second edition, Smith, the preeminent voice in decolonizing research, considers the current landscape of Indigenous research—its complexities, intersections, and transformative potential—from the position of someone who has been there. Join us as Smith engages critical scholars concerned with indigenous knowledges, decolonizing methodologies, and research for justice with and in indigenous communities, marginalized communities on or at the border, and in prisons. Eve Tuck will serve as the discussant.
