Challenging Land Loss: Indigenous legal and political responses to land-grabbing.
Convenors: Tracey Banivanua-Mar and Claudia Haake.
This workshop will bring a comparative and international perspective to the study of Indigenous responses to colonial practices of land-grabbing in Australia, the United States, Aotearoa New Zealand and parts of the Pacific. In combining the studies of scholars of several colonial encounters, and thus illustrating differing responses to the threat of land loss, the workshop will explore the nature of Indigenous peoplesí agency in the face of land loss. The range of interdisciplinary papers will explore the extent to which responses to threats of land loss were far from uniform and more than merely reactive to colonial discourses and policies.
