Then from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m., enjoy access to the full museum as well as special istallments. On Thursday, July 2nd, Dr. Elizabeth Povinelli, the Franz Boas Professor of Anthropology at Columbia University, will provide a lecture – “Karrabing: An Indigenous Otherwise in the Late Liberal Australian Geontology.”
Dr. Elizabeth Povinelli is the is the author of five books, including the upcoming Geontologies: A Requiem to Late Liberalism, and has directed three films. She is a founding member of the Karrabing social project, which rejects state forms of land tenure and group identification—namely the anthropological imaginary of the prehistoric clan, totem, and territory. Her lecture will address the improvisational relationship of the Karrabing to Late Liberalism settler colonialism, the modes of existence it seeks to maintain and enhance, and the networks of power and possibility that it encounters and reveals.
