Examining Colonizing Symbols in Sports Culture

PewewardyThere is a lot of overlap between sports culture and games culture. I encourage you to attend this lecture and think about the ways in which the “Other” and Whiteness are constructed in both realms.Iris

Dr. Cornel Pewewardy (Comanche-Kiowa), Director of Indigenous Nations Studies at Portland State University, will give a lecture and workshop entitled, “Examining Colonizing Symbols in Sports Culture: Unpacking the Possessive Investment in Whiteness” on Thursday, February 27, 2014, from 11am-1pm in the Knight Library Browsing Room. Light refreshments will be served.

Dr. Pewewardy will also hold a small  conversation/workshop for interested graduate students on Thursday, February 27, 2014 from 3:30-5:00pm in the CoDaC offices in the basement of Susan Campbell Hall. The conversation, entitled “Decolonizing Methodologies,” will likely speak to those who approach research from ethnic studies, critical race theory, Indigenous studies, or environmental/social justice frameworks. However, all interested graduate students are encouraged to attend. Light refreshments will be available at this event as well.
