Settler Space
urban spaces are dominated by normalized, settler colonial traditions, behaviours and values
“...the room felt so big, I felt like I was under a microscope. They were so angered that we get funding when they’ve been here so long”
"If I propose an idea in a class with a linear set-up, the prof reinterprets, rephrases the idea in their own worldview ... I feel excluded when the environment does not allow me to act according to my worldview"
