About the speaker: 

Dr. Joyce Green is a Professor of Political Science at the University of Regina.

She has taught in the fields of Canadian politics, women and politics, and Native studies. Her research interests have focused on issues of decolonization in Canada, and of democracy in Canada. Most recently she has been preoccupied with the project of Indigenizing the university and with reconciliation problematics. Her published work has dealt with Indigenous-state relations; Indigenous feminism; citizenship, identity, and racism in Canada’s political culture; Indigenous human rights and with reconciliation in Canada. She is the editor of Making Space for Indigenous Feminism (Fernwood Publishing and Zed Books, 2007; 2nd. ed 2017) and of Indivisible: Indigenous Human Rights (Fernwood Publishing 2014).

Dr. Green is of English, Ktunaxa, and Cree-Scottish Metis descent, and her family’s experiences have provoked much of her scholarly and political work.  She currently lives in ʔa·kiskaqⱡi?it, in ʔamak̓is Ktunaxa  (Cranbrook, B.C., in Ktunaxa territory).
