    2021: NYU Course "Critical Heritage, Memory, and Temporality" led by Jane Anderson

    In the fall of 2021, Professor Jane Anderson led an NYU course titled, Critical Heritage, Memory, and Temporality. Co-conceived from the ongoing work of Emily Johnson and Jackson Polys, the graduate students completed an assignment analyzing and comparing three Land Acknowledgments of their choosing. Compiled together each case study of Land Acknowledgements provided the analysis and data points that resulted in a robust comparative database and consolidated metric for critical assessment. The guiding questions of this assignment and the throughline of this project examine how Land Acknowledgments can lead to knowledge back, land back, Ancestors back, and Belongings back :#everythingback.
