CWPS Faculty Lecture with Bethany Hughes

(Net)working: on the early stages of research and collaboration
Tuesday, February 21, 2023
6:00-7:30 PM
1405 East Quadrangle Map
Bethany Hughes, Assistant Professor in Native American Studies & Department of American Culture and CWPS 2022 Faculty Fellow will share about their collaborative research project titled Performing Indigenous Networks.

Hughes' research project seeks to understand Indigenous networks of cultural production as active processes and interconnected sets of relationships and resources that influence the possibilities and practices of Indigenous artists. It is motivated by the question, "How do Indigenous creatives produce work while navigating the constraints of existing networks of production and forge new networks in the process?" In this talk Hughes will explore the process and practices mutually developed between the artists and scholars of the team. Attending to the ways communication, goals, skills, investments, and commitments align and misalign she will articulate the process the team is undertaking and the challenges inherent in building an equitable, ethical, and reciprocal research project.
