The CSWS Women of Color Project presents a discussion of Indigenous Children’s Survivance in Public Schools (Routledge, 2020) by Leilani Sabzalian, 3-4:30 p.m. Friday, April 23, 2021.

Sabzalian is an assistant professor of Indigenous Studies in Education and co-director of the Sapsik’wałá (Teacher) Education Program at University of Oregon. Her book uses story telling to document the ways colonialism continues to shape educational policy and practice, and foster educators’ anticolonial literacy and commitment to supporting Indigenous students in public schools.

Guest panelists include Meredith McCoy, assistant professor and Anderson Fellow of American Studies and History at Carleton College, and Kirby Brown, associate professor of English, Norman H. Brown Faculty Fellow (2019-21), director of Native American Studies at University of Oregon, and author of Stoking the Fire: Nationhood in Cherokee Writing, 1907-1970 (University of Oklahoma Press, 2018).

The book celebration is hosted by Sangita Gopal, WOC convener and associate professor, Cinema Studies, University of Oregon. Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Women in Society, University of Oregon.
