Chelsea Vowel, Métis writer from manitow-sâkahikan (Lac Ste. Anne) Alberta, is coming to the University of Vienna to offer a workshop on Indigenous Futurisms for MA and PhD students. Students interested in Indigenous futurisms and Indigenous speculative writing are encouraged to apply for this workshop, which will be an opportunity to receive critical input on their own work and to gain new perspectives on Indigenous theory and writing. The workshop will begin with an opening talk by Chelsea Vowel on the intersection between theory and fiction writing. Students will then have the opportunity to present their own work and get a response and feedback from our guest. To close, Chelsea Vowel will read from her recent short story collection Buffalo is the New Buffalo.
