Family Dis/Connections: Reimagining School-Based Family History Research in Response to Colonial Contexts


Discussant:

This symposium unsettles the norms and assumptions of genealogy projects in U.S. social studies classrooms by reflecting on the experiences of Indigenous students and teachers and proposes new epistemological groundings for such projects in regards to kinship, family and societal structure, archival access, and land.
