IAS Fellows’ Lecture – The Shaping of Things: precolonial rock fishtraps and the more-than-human ancestral present in Karrabing Indigenous Australia
March 7 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Public Lecture by Professor Elizabeth Povinelli (Columbia University)
Professor Elizabeth Povinelli examines a network of Indigenous rock fish traps on the cost of Mabaluk, in Emmiyengal Karrabing country from a decolonizing perspective. Rather than situating the fish traps in an ancestral path, she and her Indigenous Karrabing colleagues seek to demonstrate how they are part and parcel of a larger copresent struggled against the the epistemic violence of geontopower.
This lecture is free and open to all. Registration is not required to attend in person.
