Lydia’s Library Books



Further Reading

I like theory… but I fully recognize how boring it is to read! It can be so damn boring sometimes! However, when it comes down to it, I’m stuck reading theory all the time. Historic and sociological works are more interesting to me because they can really get down into how theory impacts reality and people, which is more of my cup of tea. Anyway, this post doesn’t really have anything to do with that, other than within the realm of indigenous feminist criticism there are some really smart people writing really interesting stuff that might be dry and boring to some, but to me, feels alive and energetic. This post is going to be a list of related books that I haven’t yet read, but sound good!

Also, here’s an article:

However, while well intended, feminist activism can sometimes be disempowering and even racist towards Aboriginal people, resulting in the same kind of dispossession as that inflicted by colonial governments.
