Mistakes, Teachings and Developing Anti-Racist Feminist Voices: Methodological Considerations for Feminist Research
Post-colonial and anti-racist feminist theorists have called upon women occupying spaces of privilege to center marginal voices in developing feminist knowledges. In this talk, I grapple with questions that emerge when non-Aboriginal women attempt to write about First Nations women’s experiences. First, I outline a number of ethical guidelines provided by First Nations and other critical race theorists, namely, that people from dominant positions should question white subjectivity and stop appropriating the shared experiences of disenfranchised groups. Second, I examine how intersectionality as a method may be useful as a tactic for developing more meaningful, inclusive, and innovative discussions between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal societies.
