Lunch & Learn: Hairstories of Violence: Examining How Hair Mediates Schooling and Social Practices

October 22, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

In this virtual talk, Brayboy will provide an overview of a concept that he has created with Jeremiah Chin called Terrortory. Through the lens of Terrortory, he will explore the ways that hair has mediated schooling and social practices over the course of four centuries. Brayboy is particularly interested in the ways that violence has evolved and the ways it has guided the engagement of Indigenous peoples in US society and schools. This will be done through a conversation with Professor Sabina Vaught.


"On the Development of Terrortory"

"Toward a Tribal Critical Race Theory in Education"

Registration is required. This Lunch & Learn will take place via Zoom.
