“To Live as if It Matter[s]: What Critical Indigenous Theory Taught be About Studying Music”

This lecture considered what is means – as a settler scholar – to engage in an ethics of responsiveness to Indigenous thinkers and communities. How might critical Indigenous theory shape approaches to studying music? And how might music scholarship and performance enact Decolonial practices that support Indigenous insurgence? These questions will be addressed using seven, interconnected reflections, coupled with listening examples that merge theory and performance.
