Dr. Charlotte E. Davidson (Diné/Three Affiliated Tribes - Mandan, Hidatsa & Arikara), Native American House, University of Illinois Urbana Champaign 

Dr. Davidson’s presentation focuses on “A Hidden Cartography: Navigating the Non-matrilineal Terrain of Academe,” a chapter featured in the edited book Indigenous Motherhood in the Academy. Dr. Davidson explores the lived experiences of her matrilineal relatives and narrates how they serve as living landscapes promoting womb-based ways of relating. Her talk ends with a discussion about enlivening matrilineal sensibilities within male-normed higher education settings.
