Emerging Scholar in Residence Billy-Ray Belcourt Keynote: 'The Conspiracy of Ndn Joy'
In "The Conspiracy of NDN Joy," Billy-Ray Belcourt examines a diverse range of texts-- literary, filmic, archival, and artistic--to show that wherever NDNs are, so too is the feeling of utopia. He writes in the modes of poetry, autotheory, and the speculative to argue that indigeneity potentiates in excess of the racialized embargo on care that is Canada.
Modernity is something like a terrain of bad feeling and the reserve is one of its outposts, but, Belcourt explains, it also flowers an affect world in which we can open up to the conspiracy that is our joy.
