Renate Eigenbrod is Associate Professor in the Department of Native Studies at the University of Manitoba where she teaches Canadian Aboriginal Literatures. Renate Eigenbrod’s research interests revolve around theories of decolonization in relation to Aboriginal literatures in Canada and Indigenous literatures globally. After investigating the ethics of positionality, she is presently working on the role of Aboriginal literatures within the larger societal discourses of genocide on the one hand and of reconciliation and redress on the other. She is also interested in community-based literary activities like the Aboriginal writers collectives in urban centres. She is the co-editor of Creating Community: A Roundtable on Canadian Aboriginal Literatures and the author of Travelling Knowledges: Positioning the Im/migrant Reader of Aboriginal Literatures in Canada.
