What About Love- Indigenous Literature and the Affective Life of Criticism: This course focuses on figurations of decolonial love in the writing of Leanne Simpson, Annie Ross, Billy Ray Belcourt, Danielle Geller, Tenille Campbell, Joshua Whitehead, and other Indigenous authors. Within this body of literature, decolonial love may describe intimate bonds between people; it may involve, for instance, the embracing of two-spirit or indigiqueer identity, or the claiming of kinship connections that defy the privatization of intimacy and forms of social reproduction characterizing modern life. In the archive assembled for this course, decolonial love not only describes love between people but also love of place, lands, and other-than-human worlds.
