The Southampton Institute for Arts and Humanities (SIAH), as part of the University of Southampton, looks forward to welcoming Sharon H. Venne to speak at its ‘Public Life’ seminar series. The hybrid event will take place on Thursday 26 January from 4pm to 5pm, at the Southampton Avenue Campus for those attending in person, and streamed online.
SIAH: Public Life draws a range of leading intellectuals into conversation about what the ideal of the ‘public life’ can mean to Arts and Humanities researchers and disciplines in the twenty-first century. The talks are free to attend and open to all.
Sharon H. Venne (notokwew muskwa wanitokan) will be talking about her work with the United Nations on the rights of Indigenous Peoples and Treaty Rights of Indigenous Peoples and her work as a judge directing the hearings of the Court for Intergenerational Climate Crimes (CICC). This event will be chaired by Dr J. R. Carpenter, Winchester School of Art.
Sharon H. Venne (notokwew muskwa manitokan) is a Cree woman; BA (Hon), LLB, LLM and a PhD candidate in the history department of the University of Alberta. The background research to the many clauses on the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is included in her book: Our Elders Understand Our Rights: Evolving International Law Regarding Indigenous Peoples (Theytus Books, 1998).
In addition, Venne has written numerous articles and edited materials related to the rights of Indigenous Peoples and Treaty Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Her most recent published article is ‘Manufactured Consent – how state governments manufacture consent and use it against Indigenous Nations at the domestic and international level’ in Indigenous Peoples as Subjects of International Law (Routledge, 2018) edited by Dr Irene Watson.
Venne is one of four judges directing the hearings of the Court for Intergenerational Climate Crimes (CICC), a collaboration between Indian writer, lawyer and activist Radha D’Souza and Dutch artist Jonas Staal, produced by Framer Framed.
