Thursday, November 10, 2022
6191 Helen C. White Hall
This talk will introduce Gottschalk Druschke's work with the Indigenous Lands Expropriation Education Group, who are working to create linked educational modules about the dispossession of Indigenous lands in what is now called Wisconsin. Gottschalk Druschke will focus on how publicly accessible archival materials can be paired with mapping and storytelling techniques to reconstruct this history of dispossession and consider how to incorporate that work into undergraduate writing courses.
