Earthworks Rising: Native Art and Literature
- Featured Speaker | Chadwick Allen: Russell F. Stark University Professor and Associate Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement, Department of English-University of Washington
- Moderator: Maurice Stevens: Professor, Department of Comparative Studies
Since the eighteenth century, Indigenous mounds have been represented as the tragic ruins of “lost” civilizations: “mysteries” and “enigmas” with no relation to living Native American peoples and no ongoing relevance. Digital Dialogue Three considers how Native writers, artists and communities refuse these discourses of extinction through vibrant acts of imagination — asserting the multiple ways that mounds and other earthworks continue to hold ancient knowledge and make new meaning — in the present and for the future.
