Over the past few years Rebecca Solnit has been brilliantly remapping American cities, including San Francisco, New Orleans, and New York. Each map in her anthologies aims to excavate forgotten or suppressed histories, reimagine cultural, economic, and social landscapes, and bring us to new understandings of the spaces we inhabit. Meredith Palmer, a Tuscarora, Haudenosaunee doctoral candidate in Geography at the University of California, Berkeley, talks with Solnit about her geographical interventions.
Meredith Alberta Palmer is a Tuscarora, Haudenosaunee Ph.D. candidate in the department of Geography at the University of California, Berkeley. Her work builds on growing fields of research on the role of science and technology in histories of dispossession and in the ongoing colonization of indigenous people, exploring contemporary and historic biomedical and public health practices at moments when (settler) colonial dynamics are made visible through the racialization of individuals and collectives.
