WGSI Candidate Talks

April 7 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Urban Glyphing: Indigenous hip-hop culture, BEAT NATION and urban flash mob round dancing as transformational hubs for contemporary expressions of gender and Indigeneity

Dr. Recollet has a 2010 Ph.D. in Indigenous Studies at Trent University.  She is currently an instructor at the University of Sudbury.   A Cree woman, her research examines the relationships between hip-hop, Indigeneity, and Indigenous arts-rooted methodologies, in conversation with diasporic, post- and anti-colonial scholarship.  She has a book forthcoming from Wilfrid Laurier University Press (‘We survived/we crow-walked/and we learned to fly’:  Hip-hop as contemporary urban Indigenous thought), and two other forthcoming chapters.  She is also a co-facilitator, co-ordinator, associate and participant in numerous arts projects, including a community arts project at Ramsey Lake in Sudbury, City Glyphs: A Festival of Indigenous Film, the Center for Indigenous Theatre, Native Earth Performing Arts, Indigenous Performance Initiatives, and more.  Dr. Recollet played a pivotal role in initiating arts-rooted praxis into courses on Indigenous women, and in organizing an Indigenous women’s symposium, at Trent University.
