“From the Sight of Extraction: Thinking Globally with Indigeneity” by Macarena Gómez-Barris, Pratt
“From the Sight of Extraction: Thinking Globally with Indigeneity” by Macarena Gómez-Barris, chair social science and cultural studies, Pratt Institute; director, Global South Center.
This talk will draw upon Gómez-Barris’ recent work in The Extractive Zone (Duke University Press 2017) and Beyond the Pink Tide (University of California Press 2018) to consider how we might refuse the logics of extractive capitalism by centering Indigenous and Afro-based knowledge production and artistic praxis. What does comparative Indigenous Studies outside of the frame of the nation-state do for a global and future oriented model of scholarship? How can we learn from sites and sights of catastrophe?
