What does it mean to play, “consume”, and study sport in ways that not only enhance the well-being of various types of bodies but also cultivate respectful and reciprocal community relationships on Indigenous land?
Dr. Chen Chen, an assistant professor in sport management and a faculty member of Native American and Indigenous Studies (NAIS), will reflect on his journey as an uninvited guest to Indigenous land, and how that informs his research and teaching on sport. This will be followed by a collective conversation on possible steps that various sport and non-sport communities at UConn can take to become better kins at a time of multiple planetary crises.
