How Do we Articulate Cyberspace (a landless territory) within the discourse of Indigenous Studies?

Classroom Climate: Aboriginal Initiatives

1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Irving K Barber Learning Centre, Seminar (Room 2.22 A/B)

All too often there is a perceived gap between Indigenous peoples and technology. This imaginative fissure is symptomatic of a larger, fallacious belief that indigeniety and Indigenous cultural practices are products of the past. However, Indigenous knowledges and peoples are not only mobilizing technology, they are also shaping the way technology is being developed and utilized.
