Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


For the Rage special issue, feminist and legal scholar Sarah Deer (Muscogee [Creek]), University Distinguished Professor at the University of Kansas, and Jodi A. Byrd (Chickasaw), associate professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, engage in a powerful roundtable conversation moderated by the Rage special issue editors Harvard feminist professor Durba Mitra and UCLA feminist professor Sarah Haley. In their rich exchange, we learn of the role of rage in Indigenous feminisms today. The roundtable explores critical issues for thinking the feminist, queer, and trans politics of rage among Indigenous communities—sexual violence, settler dispossession, the COVID-19 pandemic, racism, survival in the face of institutional and social violence, and the importance of Indigenous solidarity with social movements for Black lives in the aftermath of the police killing of George Floyd in May 2020.
