Native Literary Transformations: or Breaking Bad
LeAnne Howe
Eidson Distinguished Professor in American Literature, University of Georgia

This lecture will discusses duration, one of four core story principals that Dr. Howe developed with her research partners for a SSHRC project titled Indigenous Knowledge and Contemporary Performance. She connects the duration of a Choctaw creation story with Harvard Professor Atul Gawande’s work in health systems innovations, and further links those stories with a research project that Choctaw Chief Ben Dwight conducted in the early 1950s on weather predictions. Duration is a storying tool that all writers and scholars may find useful, and one of the essentials that Natives used to shape the Southeast.
