Show Notes

Dr. Deana Dartt, Founder and Principal of Live Oak Consulting, PhD in Anthropology and Museum Studies, and enrolled member of the Coastal Band of the Chumash Nation, joins us today for a conversation about the ways that racism and anti-indigeneity shape PhD training as well as the tenure track career, especially in Anthropology. Delving into shared memories of a contentious social theory graduate seminar, Deana, Karen and Kel unpack the ways that white supermacy is imposed in classroom interactions and what level of challenges are possible. Deana also shares the anti-settler-colonialist interventions she is making through her museum consulting around the kinds of structural and policy changes necessary to responsibly handle Native artifacts and resources.
