Hickey Contributes Chapters to Two Different Volumes
Visiting Assistant Professor of American Studies Amber Hickey contributed a chapter to the recently published Routledge Companion to Contemporary Art, Visual Culture, and Climate Change (eds. TJ Demos, Subhankar Banerjee, and Emily Eliza Scott). The chapter, titled “Remembering the Land: Art, Direct Action, and the Denial of Extractive Realities on Bougainville,” mobilizes the work of Bougainvillean artist Taloi Havini as a lens through which to learn from movements for environmental justice and decolonization in Bougainville.
Hickey also contributed a chapter to the recently published volume Violence and Indigenous Communities: Confronting the Past, Engaging the Present (eds. Susan Sleeper-Smith, Jeff Ostler, and Josh Reid). The chapter, titled “Pathways toward Justice: Walking as Decolonial Resistance,” focuses on long-distance protest walks as a form of embodied decolonial resistance.
