The Women and Gender Studies Institute is pleased to present a Research Seminar:

Cheryl Suzack

'Trapped in One of the Oldest Ways': Indigenous Women, Literature, and Law

Cheryl Suzack is an assistant professor of English, and was educated at the University of Guelph and the University of Alberta. Her research explores the intersections between Indigenous law and literature with a focus on Indigenous women’s writing in the post-civil rights period. She is a co-editor and contributor to Indigenous Women and Feminism: Politics, Activism, Culture (UBC Press 2010), a co-editor of “Law, Literature, Postcoloniality,” ARIEL: A Review of International English Literature, and a contributor to a special issue of South Atlantic Quarterly, “Sovereignty, Indigeneity, and the Law,” which was voted best special issue of 2011 by the Council of Editors of Learned Journals. She is in the final stages of completing a book manuscript entitled Indigenous Women’s Writing and the Cultural Study of Law. Suzack is cross-appointed to the Aboriginal Studies Program and teaches courses for English and Aboriginal Studies on comparative Indigenous literatures, comparative Indigenous studies, and Indigenous decolonization with a focus on gender issues and Indigenous women.

The Women and Gender Studies Research Seminar is a student-focused monthly forum, for the presentation of work-in-progress engaged in interdisciplinary feminist studies and its many intersections. Like a departmental colloquium, the seminar’s goal is to foster friendly, yet critically engaged, conversation and to feature the excellent emerging scholarship by graduate students and faculty.  The research seminar’s overarching goal is to create opportunities for regular participation in the intellectual life of interdisciplinary feminist studies research here on campus.

This event is free and open to the public.  For further information, please contact the Women and Gender Studies Institute at (416) 946-5800.
