Lisa Binkley is Anishinaabeg-Algonquin and settler, and an Assistant Professor in the History Dept. Her work focuses on Indigenous and settler textiles as material culture, and repatriation. She has published on settler and Indigenous quilts, Haudenosaunee quilts and public exhibitions, Star blankets and critical Indigenous heritage. She is currently part of three SSHRC-funded projects that explore a disruption of the Western literary and art historical canons through Indigenous perspectives, Climate Grief, and the examination of textiles and architecture through augmented reality. She is working on two new projects. A research project that aims to decolonize and remap the fur trade route through an interrogation of handmade footwear. A partnership with the Mi'kmawey Debert Centre that aims to repatriate, digitize, and share community histories and knowledges.


The Dalhousie Feminist Seminar Series brings together faculty and students from across Dalhousie, our colleagues at other institutions in Halifax and elsewhere, and members of the community interested in feminist research and scholarship to present and engage with one another's work in a collegial and supportive environment. The Series is housed in the Gender & Women's Studies Program at Dalhousie, with the support of Dr. Liesl Gambold, and is organized by Erin Wunker, Catherine Bryan, Asha Jeffers, and Eli Manning. The Series' archive of recorded events is hosted on https://hookandeye.ca- Fast Feminism | Slow Academe.
