Feminist Seminar Series

The latest chapter of the Dalhousie Feminist Seminar Series takes place on Friday, January 22, 2021. Dr. Lisa Binkley of Dal’s Department of History presents ‘Reviewing a 1960s Mi’kmaq Ribbon Skirt: Reclamation, Resilience, Resistance’ from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m., and the NSCAD community is invited to attend.
Dr. Binkley is Anishinaabeg-Algonquin and settler, and her work focuses on Indigenous and settler textiles as material culture, and repatriation. She has published on settler and Indigenous quilts, Haudenosaunee quilts and public exhibitions, Star blankets and critical Indigenous heritage. She is currently part of three SSHRC-funded projects that explore a disruption of the Western literary and art historical canons through Indigenous perspectives, Climate Grief, and the examination of textiles and architecture through augmented reality.

The Dalhousie Feminist Seminar Series brings together faculty, staff and students from universities and the community with an interest in feminist research and scholarship to present and engage with one another’s work in a collegial and supportive environment.
