This workshop and talk with artist-scholar Jodi Lynn Maracle will explore personal, institutional, and pop culture relationships to western feminism. Given the location of the University at Buffalo on Seneca lands, Haudenosaunee contemporary and historical social and political formations will be centered as a lens for unpacking problematic feminist theory and practices.

Jodi Lynn Maracle is Kanien’keha:ka mother, artist and scholar whose work centers the creative resistance and decolonial practices of Haudenosaunee queer and non-binary people and Haudenosaunee women in the forms of material production, birth practices, language resurgence and place making.

image from movie, Postcards from Tora Bora

Join filmmaker and anthropologist Wazhmah Osman for a screening of her documentary Postcards from Tora Bora (2007). The screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmmaker.

The Osman family fled Afghanistan at the height of the Cold War, leaving almost everything behind. In the chaos, their suitcase filled with family photos is stolen. Postcards from Tora Bora tells the story of how, after two decades of living in the United States, Wazhmah returns to her childhood home. On an alternately sad and humorous quest and armed only with rapidly fading memories, she recruits some unlikely and reluctant guides as she attempts to put together the pieces of her past.
