Wednesday, February 16th, 2022, 12-1PM EST

with Dr. Jennifer Brant

Curriculum, Teaching and Learning, OISE, University of Toronto

About the Talk:

In this presentation Dr. Brant will share her work on Indigenous Maternal Methodologies and her engagement with Indigenous methodologies and Indigenous feminisms more broadly. Her presentation will also document the way she honours her identity as a Yakonkwehón:we and tends to the ethical and relational responsibilities of enacting Indigenous research in educational settings. Dr. Brant will also highlight her current research on reconciliatory education in teacher education and offer concrete examples of how innovative approaches to research design, grounded in Indigenous ways of doing research, can carve out theorizing spaces for liberatory praxis.

About Dr. Jennifer Brant:

Jennifer Brant - Kanien'keha:ka (Mohawk Nation) is currently an Assistant Professor at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education and teaches courses related to anti-Indigenous racism, colonial violence and Indigenous literatures. Her work positions Indigenous literatures as educational tools to move students beyond passive empathy, inspire healing and wellness, and foster socio-political action. Jennifer is the co-editor of "Forever Loved: Exposing the Hidden Crisis of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in Canada" and writes to call for immediate responses to racialized, sexualized, and gender-based violence. Through her community work, teaching, research, and writing, Jennifer is dedicated to encouraging students to engage in effective responses to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada's 94 Calls to Action and the 231 Calls for Justice released in the final report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls entitled Reclaiming Power and Place.
