  Dr. Kathryn Walkiewicz: "Sovereign Printscapes: Cherokee Nation vs. The Georgia Press"  
(Special Event)

"Sovereign Printscapes: Cherokee Nation vs. the Georgia Press"

Through an analysis of the Cherokee Phoenix (the first newspaper published by a Native nation), Freedom's Journal (the first Black-owned, Black-edited newspaper), and Georgia publications, this talk argues that the newspaper's form posed a challenge to nineteenth-century Black and Native emancipatory politics. It also demonstrates how Georgia newspaper editors and politicians during the Removal era developed a template for states' rights rhetoric that still dominates disputes about vaccine and mask mandates, abortion, gun laws, and incarceration.

Kathryn Walkiewicz (enrolled citizen of Cherokee Nation) is an assistant professor of nineteenth-century American literature and culture at UC San Diego. Her work has appeared in numerous scholarly journals, including ASAP/Journal, J19: Journal of Nineteenth-Century Americanists, and NAIS: Journal of the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association, as well as the Rumpus. She also co-edited The People Who Stayed: Southeastern Indian Writing after Removal (University of Oklahoma Press, 2010).

The talk will take place via Zoom webinar. Please register at this link:
