J. Byrd.

This class will focus on reading novels, poetry, and essays by Louise Erdrich, perhaps the most well-known American Indian author in the United States. Often compared to William Faulkner, Louise Erdrich writes stories and novels about Turtle Mountain Ojibwe and the upper Midwest. The readings and class discussions will focus on the intersections her work raises within and beyond Indigenous feminisms, relationalities, and futurisms as we build critical frameworks through which to consider the importance of history, sovereignty, kinship, storytelling, and representation to North American Indigenous resistance and resurgence.
