Professor López will be in conversation with Gregory Smithers to discuss their recent publication, Reclaiming Two Spirits.
Event Details: Thursday Dec 8 4:00 – 5:00 p.m.
CSREA’s New Book Talks highlight new and notable works studying race, ethnicity, and indigeneity. They facilitate thought-provoking and critical engagement with emerging scholarship.
The latest publication from Gregory Smithers, Reclaiming Two-Spirits, decolonizes the history of gender and sexuality in Native North America, while honoring the generations of Indigenous people who had the foresight to take essential aspects of their cultural life and spiritual beliefs underground in order to save them. Smithers is Professor of American History, Virginia Commonwealth University. The conversation will be moderated by Andrés López, Assistant Professor of Indigenous and Canadian Studies, Carleton University.
