Discussion Question 4/28

Hello Everyone!

This week I decided to frame my question around both Chapter 10 Globalization and Radical Feminist Pedagogy and Chapter 11 Activism and Alliance within Campus Sisterhood Organizations.

Both spoke about making alliances across borders while critically interrogating difference and our own experience (common theme through out the seminar). Both authors share their theory and practice in and out of academia; however, within these different processes where do the current struggle of indigenous people now? I think many times discussion on globalization, feminism, racism, sexism, etc. tends to briefly cover the location and standpoint of those who identify as indigenous. In addition, in my past experience courses treat these experiences as something from the past. So how can educators continue to "unfold" in this context and how do we include this particular community in the "unfolding process"? How can we effectively use the "three major processes---critique, communication, and confrontation/negotiation"(p. 152) and feminist pedagogy to engage in discussion with indigenous communities across social locations that in my opinion are forgotten?

See you all in class.
