Dr. Joanna Hearne will be the last presenter of the Diversity In Action: Bridging Research and Practice brown bag series. This series of research-based presentations is designed to inform scholars, students, and practitioners of diversity-related research at Mizzou.
This presentation explores scenes of Native American spectatorship and film reception in films by contemporary Native film directors and producers. The films situate indigenous viewers as contemporary producers and consumers of visual media and suggest ways that politicized forms of viewing can re-signify Western-genre and documentary images of anonymous and stereotyped Indian characters.
