Geographies of Embodiment in Settler-Colonies

Type: Paper
Theme: Expanding the Community of Geography
Sponsor Groups: Indigenous Peoples Specialty Group, Health and Medical Geography Specialty Group
Organizers: Deondre Smiles, Meredith Palmer, Shelby Loft
Chairs: Meredith Palmer


How can postcolonial, Indigenous, and settler colonial scholarship think through and with the body to engage and unsettle fundamental themes in human geography, such as scale, sovereignty, identity, belonging, territory, and power? This panel contends that power differentiates, marginalizes, and subjectifies particular people and groups by working in and through the production of the body, and that central texts in critical race studies, postcolonial studies, Black and Diaspora studies, and Native American and Indigenous studies can be read for theories of embodiment. This panel foregrounds historic and present spatial politics of embodiment, and embodied politics of space: in the constitution of racialized and gendered subjects; in the reproduction of colonial dispossession and expropriation; the scale at which trauma and violence are felt; the position from which redress and liberation may be enacted.
