This roundtable explores the transdisciplinary ground between Indigenous Studies and German Studies. Guided by an understanding that the conversations around restoring relations must reach into all disciplines, participants will explore the role German Studies – its research, teaching, and institutions – can play in the overdue rethinking of the academy beyond its colonial, exclusionary, and racist legacies with a view toward transformative change. In thought papers and moderated discussion, an interdisciplinary group of Indigenous scholars and German Studies scholars will offer insight into how the transdisciplinary linkages between German and Indigenous Studies might create fruitful interchange that advocates for social justice actions while serving as one site of knowledge exchange.
