VIRTUAL EVENT: Indigenous Futurism: Native American Women and the New Literature of Hope

**Please Note** This event will now be hosted online. Limited to the first 100 registrants. Email drahsturgis@gmail.com to register.

Dr. Amy H. Sturgis considers "Indigenous Futurism," an emerging genre of Native American literature focused on hope.

In this free McConnell Center lecture, Sturgis considers sovereign stories and how Native storytellers--particularly women leaders--bring refreshing perspectives to energize both the "science" and "fiction" of science fiction. She considers how these stories help us better understand the mistakes of the past and the promise of the future.

Audience Q&A encouraged.
