Race and Trans-imperialism Workshop
The Research Society of Victorian Periodicals
May 10, 2021
Join on 10 May 2021 at 6 pm UK / 12 pm CT for the first in a series of RSVP workshops on race and trans-imperialism, titled, Returning Citation: The Journal of the Polynesian Society, Natural Science and Indigenous Agents.
In this one-hour workshop, Dr. Megan Kuster will talk through questions about Indigenous contributorship raised by the Journal of the Polynesian Society. She will also outline how she has been drawing on Indigenous Studies methods to recontextualise the absent presences of Indigenous knowledge brokers. 20 to 30 minutes of discussion and suggestions for further reading will follow her 30-min presentation.
Megan Kuster is a European Research Council Postdoctoral Research Fellow on the SouthHem project, in the School of English, Drama and Film at University College Dublin in Ireland (see https://www.ucd.ie/southhem/). Megan’s current project focuses on the environment, capital and labour in colonial New Zealand. An article on this research is forthcoming in the Journal of Colonialism and Colonial History (July 2021). Her presentation for RSVP’s workshop series on race and trans-imperialism is part of a new article she is preparing on Moa bones, Indigenous labour and extinction discourse.
