He will offer the workshop, “Writing Difference: Teaching and Writing in Modern America,” Thursday, October 24 from 10 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. (lunch included) in conjunction with his evening keynote talk, “Writing Indian Lives,” from 5-7:30 p.m. (keynote Address and Reading: 5:00-6:30 p.m.; Q&A and book signing: 6:30-7:30 p.m.). The workshop will focus on teaching and writing diversity, addressing how we might develop a more culturally and historically relevant pedagogy across disciplines, as well as how we might change our discussion to incorporate a more complex and respectful understanding of Native Peoples' histories and lived presences.
