Co-sponsored by the University's Department of American Indian Studies and the Office for Public Engagement, this is the second year-long series of roundtables focusing on decolonization and community-engaged scholarship.  This year's forums will examine two important themes: the colonial roots of disciplinary theories, and knowledge and governance.
