Mishuana Goeman, assistant professor of gender studies, has written a new book, “Mark My Words: Native Women (Re)mapping Our Nations.”
The book examines the role of 20th-century native women’s literature in remapping settler geographies. “Mark My Words” traces settler colonialism as an enduring form of gendered spatial violence, demonstrating how it persists in the contemporary context of neoliberal globalization. In a strong and lucid voice, Goeman provides close readings of literary texts, arguing that it is vital to refocus the efforts of native nations beyond replicating settler models of territory, jurisdiction and race.
