Recording relationally: Indigenous new media and digital storytelling

Digital Studio, Arts West (Building 148). 5 December 2018

Presenter: David Gaertner, First Nations and Indigenous Studies Program, University of British Columbia

This seminar critically explored the theoretical, cultural, political-economic, and gendered dynamics underwriting the histories and futures of Indigenous new media. A key focus was examining the ways in which new media and digital storytelling connect to and support key issues in the field of Indigenous studies, such as sovereignty, self-determination, decolonization, and land rights.
