Leanne Betasamosake Simpson upcoming lecture
It’s June and we’re days away from our MFA residency. Leanne Betasamosake Simpson will give our keynote lecture on her new and absolutely amazing book, Noopiming, The Cure for White Ladies. It is structured through voices of different aspects of the self (the nervous system, phases of life) expanded to include the physical world (trees and more). Super smart, tender, illuminating- it’s an amazing book. Her lecture will be June 5th online. It’s free and open to the public. If you want to more of a sense about her work, here’s some places to start: Download and listen to the songs/spoken word from her book Islands of Decolonial Love on the APR Books website. Listen to her discussion with Naomi Klein as part of Klein’s course on The Corporate Self. Find out more about Leanne’s work here.
