Indigenous literary nationalism argues for the importance of using Indigenous ways of knowing to analyze Indigenous texts. Using her Metis family history and the Cree concept wâhkôhtowin or kinship, interrelatedness, June Scudeler will show how Métis ways of knowing inspire a resurgent reading of Marilyn Dumont's poetry.
June Scudeler (Métis) is the 2017-2020 Shadbolt Fellow in the SFU Galleries and Term Assistant Professor in First Nations Studies. She received her B.A. and M.A. in English at SFU and her PhD in English from UBC. Her research examines the intersections between queer Indigenous studies, Indigenous literature, film, and art. June's current project explores Indigenous Gothic, horror and science fiction film and literature. Inspired by a love of Indigenous arts, she is the co-Chair of the Vancouver Indigenous Media Art Festival society, and a co-editor of Studies in American Indian Literatures.
Co-presented by SFU's Vancity Office of Community Engagement, the Indigenous Research Institute, the SFU Office for Aboriginal Peoples, and SFU First Nations Studies
