Panel 17: Indigenous Lands and Visual Rhetoric in Ecomedia II (pre-formed)

ECOMEDIA IN THE ANTHROPOCENE (THE 2018 ASLE SYMPOSIUM)

A NEARLY CARBON-NEUTRAL CONFERENCE

Panel 17: Indigenous Lands and Visual Rhetoric in Ecomedia II (pre-formed by the Indigenous Ecocriticism SIG)

Chair: Abigail Perez Aguilera (aperezaguilera@westminstercollege.edu)

This panel (as part of a two series panel on Indigenous ecomedia) explores ecomedia practices from South America, Africa and Oceania. The papers present different ecomedia—from films, videopoems to art installations—that address indigenous knowledges, cosmopolitics, heteronormative ideals, resistance practices, and rights while discussing the limits of Western environmental thought. In their papers, the panelists offer discussions on decolonial aesthetics, queering indigenous and non-indigenous performativities, indigenous resistance as well as non- human agencies. Drawing Indigenous studies theories and methodologies to the fore, the panel advances interdisciplinary discussions on ecomedia, highlighting Indigenous media relevance to ecological resistance, critiques to Anthropocentrism and capitalism as well as environmental justice and decolonial aesthetics.

Panel 16: Indigenous Lands and Visual Rhetoric in Ecomedia I (pre-formed)

ECOMEDIA IN THE ANTHROPOCENE (THE 2018 ASLE SYMPOSIUM)

A NEARLY CARBON-NEUTRAL CONFERENCE

Panel 16: Indigenous Lands and Visual Rhetoric in Ecomedia I (pre-formed by the Indigenous Ecocriticism SIG)

Chair: Kyle Bladow (Assistant Professor of Native American Studies, Northland College)

Respondent: Salma Monani (Associate Professor of Environmental Studies, Gettysburg College)

This panel explores ecomedia practices around the world, highlighting three projects from three separate continents, each using documentary-style film and video with Indigenous themes. Land is a recurring theme in the papers, as panelists consider Indigenous rights, connections to place, and land use conflicts. The panelists advance the conference’s investigation of contradictions arising from ecomedia production and consumption, posing questions about ecological relations and their influences on Indigenous identity and political sovereignty. The panel further considers a range of media practices (feature documentary, documentary-style fictional drama, and social media video and drone footage), all contributing to the ongoing definition of ecomedia.
