Dr. Sam McKegney

I am a settler scholar of Indigenous literatures. My research seeks to register the ways in which Indigenous literary artists: (1) interrogate ongoing settler colonialism and the violent history upon which it is based, (2) use artistic means of expression to imagine modes of sociality and Indigenous persistence that exceed the confines of the settler colonial nation state, and (3) mobilize the expressive arts to provoke extra-textual responses from Indigenous, settler, and diasporic readers that might contribute to projects of decolonization. My hope is that my research can in small ways serve to catalyze the visionary interventions of Indigenous writers and artists. I have published on such topics as residential school survival narratives, environmental kinship, masculinity theory, prison writing, Indigenous governance, discourses of reconciliation, and Canadian hockey mythologies.
