The Women's Center with Student Life's Mosaic Center present the Critical Social Justice 2017 Keynote Lecture,"Native Appropriations, Indigenous Social Media, and Responding to Racism," with Native scholar and activist Dr. Adrienne Keene (Cherokee Nation), who writes about cultural appropriation and stereotypes of Native peoples in pop culture on her blog Native Appropriations.
Keene examines the way Indigenous peoples are using new media to challenge racism, present authentic counter-narratives, and create innovative spaces for art and activism.
In addition to the keynote lecture, there will be a resource fair with community organizations ranging from sexual assault healing networks, social justice education, activism, and Native American heritage centers.
Doors open at 5:30pm. A meet-and-greet reception will follow the keynote.
This event is free and open to the public. If you have questions or need accommodations, please contact the Women’s Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
