Fridays in the Wilderness: Indigeneity in Space and Story

Join Dr. Bethany Hughes from the Department of American Culture and Steven Pelletier from English Language and Literature for a conversation about Robinson Crusoe, television, Native American literature, and the impact representation has on Indigenous peoples. A complimentary lunch will be served, but we ask that participants register in advance.

What’s the connection between Netflix’s Lost In Space reboot, Star Trek, Avatar, and a 300 year old adventure novel? How does a story about shipwrecks speak to the “discovery” of America? Why did an Indigenous Caribbean character, Friday, come to be represented as an enslaved African? How are contemporary Indigenous artists responding to the history of erasure and misrepresentation that Robinson Crusoe illustrates?
