Indigenous Girlhood: Premiere Screening and Discussion

Presented by: Dr. Megan Scribe

Join us virtually for the world premiere of Indigenous Girlhood: Narratives of Colonial Care in Law and Literature, based on Dr. Megan Scribe’s (Ininiw, Norway House Cree Nation) doctoral research. This four-minute animated short film explores what it means for Indigenous girls to come-of-age in state custody within a settler colonial society, as well as examining the ways these experiences are subsequently narrated in legal and literary forums. This multidisciplinary work invites scholars from across disciplines to establish new linkages between gender, age, and settler domination while also critically reflecting on how these knowledges are disseminated to diverse audiences.

This virtual event will feature a presentation by Dr. Megan Scribe and a panel discussion with the animation team, including Graham Constant (Opaskwayak Cree Nation), Remedial V. Wulfph, and Darla Contois (Grand Rapids Cree Nation).

In Winter 2022, in place of the drop-in hours it holds at its space in X University Library, the Centre for Digital Humanities (CDH) will be holding weekly virtual drop-in sessions on Wednesdays from Noon-1 pm (usually on Zoom). These are intended as casual, learning opportunities that bring together the DH community at X University and beyond during COVID-19 restrictions.
