#IndigenousReads is a literature colloquium dedicated to very contemporary literature by Indigenous writers from Turtle Island. We meet monthly to discuss the texts and their socio-historical implications.
The setting is friendly and informal; it resembles a book club more than a university course. We gather students, staff, and local guests, the only requirement being to read the books. Students from the EUCOR network (Universities of Freiburg, Basel, Strasbourg, and Mulhouse) can apply for their travel expenses to be reimbursed by the international office from their home university.
I want to extend a warm THANK YOU! to Dr. Shawn Huelle, from the Carl Schurz Haus, for purchasing the books on our program each semester and making them available to our members and to the greater Freiburg reading community at the American Library.
I also want to thank the Walthari and Ludwig bookstores for stocking the books at an affordable price, making it convenient for anybody interested in joining us to purchase a copy, and my colleagues Sissy Braüer, Dawson Highland, and Junia Michels for their continuous help with advertising our program on campus and in the media.

I look forward to adding you to the group.
