In this talk, Arturo Arias (UC Merced) will demonstrate how a diversity of Indigenous paradigms and methods are appearing in the Americas. Literary texts appeared first. Now we are beginning to witness a surge of critical works. Indigenous theorists are often political actors, working within their respective grassroots movements, or writing to help either grassroots organizations or their own communities to advance specific goals. This talk will emphasize the production of critical works by Native American and Indigenous critics.

Mission

The Hemispheric Institute on the Americas is an interdisciplinary group bringing together faculty and graduate students that focus on the study of transnational processes in the American Hemisphere.

Our Goal includes promoting research to challenge the boundaries of disciplinary specialization and culture area studies, exploring the connections throughout the social, cultural, and economic landscape of the Western Hemisphere from an array of perspective and redirecting and redefining the study of Latin America from a broadly hemispheric viewpoint.
