“In a mobile classroom — basically a trailer outfitted with a desk and some chairs — music teacher Chris Miller works with a group of active kindergartners dressed in green and khaki school uniforms. He teaches them the basics: musical concepts, artists and styles of music.”

“Although in opera they say “it ain’t over ’til the fat lady sings,” the opera library performs long before the season starts and continues after the final curtain.
In 2010, when I first came on board at the Metropolitan Opera Music Library (MOML), I realized that its amazing collection was virtually uncataloged. I researched other opera libraries and found similar conditions, so I have developed an organizing system that relies on detailed metadata.”

This year’s Institute invites students to explore rich histories of Native struggles, contemporary (trans)national Indigenous social movements, and repertoires of decolonizing artistic, cultural, and intellectual production. Students will also explore the long-standing double-bind that Indigenous peoples face: their practices are seen as out-of-place (or dangerous) by the rules of settler-societies and “inauthentic” when they employ the logics and languages of dominant markets and states. We welcome student projects that explore topics that include (but are not limited to) Indigenous social movements, encounters between European and Native epistemologies (in debates over archaeology, genetics, nature, and religion), contrasting colonial and Native temporalities, and Native artistic production (including literature and the visual, plastic, and performing arts).
