Dear Sir or Madam, dear friends of the EUF American Studies-team,

we cordially invite you to join us for our international workshop
“Indigenous North American Futurities: Archives, Source Codes, Beginnings”
at the Europa-Universität Flensburg (EUF):

where: HEL 064, EUF (Auf dem Campus 1, 24943 Flensburg)
when: June 17, 9:00 a.m. – 2:15 p.m.

Framing Indigenous people as members of bygone civilizations is,
unfortunately, not a thing of the past. From James Earle Fraser’s famous
sculpture End of the Trail to Hollywood blockbusters like Dances with
Wolves, Indigenous cultures have long been displaced into nostalgic
obsolescence. These images, while widespread, do not go unchallenged, and
Indigenous cultural expressions abound with imaginaries of the future in
textual narratives, digital media, visual arts, and public spaces, such as
museums or websites. As part of our DFG-funded research project on
Indigenous North American engagements of temporality and the future in
museums and digital environments, this workshop sets out to revise hegemonic
historiography and literary canons, seeking to map broader understandings of
temporality and futurity within American studies at large. Speakers include:
Grace Dillon (Portland State University), Sarah Henzi (University of
Montreal), Ho'esta Mo'e'hahne (Portland State University), Geneviève
Susemihl (CAU Kiel), Kristina Baudemann (EUF), and Birgit Däwes (EUF). For
more information, please refer to the program (attached) and to our website
at www.uni-flensburg.de/nativefutures
<http://www.uni-flensburg.de/nativefutures> .

Please join us to learn, listen, and discuss! We welcome students, teachers,
members of the EUF and of other universities – and cordially extend our
invitation to anyone interested in the Indigenous future. The workshop is
kindly supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and by
Europa-Universität Flensburg. There is no conference fee, but e-mail
registration is requested by June 7, 2019 at native.futures at uni-flensburg.de
<mailto:native.futures at uni-flensburg.de> . 

We look forward to meeting you there,
Birgit Däwes and Kristina Baudemann
