Kim TallBear is an enrolled member of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate in
South Dakota. She is also descended from the Cheyenne & Arapaho
Tribes of Oklahoma. TallBear originally trained to become a community
and environmental planner at the University of Massachusetts, Boston
and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Department of Urban
Studies and Planning (DUSP). She completed in 2005 a Ph.D. at the
University of California, Santa Cruz in History of Consciousness. More
broadly, she is interested in the historical and ongoing roles of
science and technology (technoscience) in the colonization of
indigenous peoples and others. Yet because tribes and other indigenous
peoples insist on their status as sovereigns, she is also interested
in the increasing role of technoscience in indigenous governance. What
are the challenges for indigenous peoples related to science and
technology, and what types of innovative work and thinking occur at
the interface of technoscience and indigenous governance? Into her
research she brings collaborations, and teaching indigenous,
postcolonial, and feminist science studies analyses that enable not
only critique but generative thinking about the possibilities for
democratizing science and technology.

Presented as part of the Future Imaginary Lecture Series:

negotiate and advance their agenda for women's rights, peace and
democracy, in the context of a strong history of feminist activism in
Sudan to combat gender oppression.

Dr. Asha El-Karib is a leading feminist activist, human rights
defender, researcher and proud grandmother based in Khartoum, Sudan.
She is currently the Senior Strategic Advisor for the Sudanese
Organization for Research and Development (SORD).

Dr. El-Karib began her activist journey as a young woman engaged in
the Sudanese Women's Union. She has worked for the Agency for
Cooperation and Research in Development (ACORD) and was a founder of
the Gender Centre for Research and Training. Dr. El-Karib is also the
co-founder of a civil society initiative in Sudan which endeavours to
bring democratic civil society actors together to work jointly on
issues of democracy, peace building and good governance. She also
works closely with women from Darfur and on the issues relating to
women and peace processes.
