Sovereign Materials: Tragedy, Extraction, and the Settler Colonial Mindset

Tue, 3/5 · 5:00 pm7:00 pm · PUL Makerspace, A Level of Lewis Science Library

Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in Humanites (IHUM)

This salon will stage an interactive dialogue between contemporary Amazonia and Greek tragedy. We will use some of the tools in Makerspace to foreground the material and productive practices implicated in our projects, dwelling on points of connection, including political sovereignty, narrative, and loss. Some of our guiding questions include: What is sovereignty made of? Under what circumstances is “making” a destructive process? What, if anything, does death produce?

IHUM graduate students presenting: Paul Eberwine (Classics) & Lucas Prates (Anthropology)
