Andrea Sullivan-ClarkeProfessor Andrea Sullivan-Clarke will explore Native American philosophy in a free public lecture Tuesday in the SoCA Armouries.

Lecture to examine First Nations philosophy

The Humanities Research Group will present Andrea Sullivan-Clarke’s lecture, “A Way of Being in the World: Native American/First Nations Philosophy,” on Tuesday, Jan. 21, at 6 p.m. in the Armouries Performance Hall, 37 University Ave. East.

“In this presentation, I introduce Native American and First Nations philosophy by connecting their traditional oral narratives and thought with three branches of the traditional Western canon: metaphysics, epistemology, and axiology,” says Dr. Sullivan-Clarke. “Through these connections, it will become apparent that First Nations philosophy offers a different way of being in the world.”

Sullivan-Clarke is a professor in the Department of Philosophy and a member of the wind clan of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation of Oklahoma.
