2017 Georgia Harkness Lecture: “Doubleweaving Resistance: Two-Spirit Stories, Theories, and Futures” with Qwo-Li Driskill

Doubleweave is a basket weaving technique in Southeastern Indigenous traditions in which separate inside and outside patterns emerge through one continuous weave. Drawing on the concept of doubleweave as both a material practice and political framework, this talk will weave together scholarship, poetry, and performance to honor Indigenous Two-Spirit/LGBTQ resistances to ongoing settler colonialism in the past, present, and future.

Qwo-Li Driskill, PhD, Associate Professor in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; and Director of Graduate Studies at Oregon State University, delivered our Center for LGBTQ and Gender Studies in Religion’s 2017 Georgia Harkness Lecture on October 19, 2017.
