Jackman Humanities Institute Presents Savage States: Settler Governance in an Age of Sorrow

On Wednesday January 17 at 4 PM, the Jackman Humanities Institute is hosting a talk by Dr. Audra Simpson from the Anthropology Department of Columbia University. In Savage States: Settler Governance in  an Age of Sorrow, Dr. Simpson considers the world of settler colonialism, which demands a newness and a world in which Native people and their claims to territory are whittled to the status of claimant or subject in time with the fantasy of their disappearance and containment away from a modern and critical present.

The event is hosted at Room 100 in the Jackman Humanities Institute building (170 St. George Street). It is free and open to all, we hope to see you there!
