Call for Proposals

DEADLINE: November 25, 2013

With literature as a crossroads where many forms of knowledge meet—art, history, politics, science, religion, film, cultural studies—we welcome once again spirited participation on all aspects of Native American studies. We invite proposals for individual papers, panel discussions, readings, exhibits, demonstrations, and workshops.  We especially encourage presentations and panels on teaching children’s and young adult literature by indigenous writers.

Scheduled speakers include National Book Award winner Louise Erdrich, Eric Gansworth who just published a young adult novel, If I Ever Get Out of Here, and First Nations Manitoba writers Duncan Mercredi, Katherena Vermette, and Rosanna Deerchild whose work appears in Manitowapow.

Nominations/Applications for the Beatrice Medicine Award for Scholarship in American Indian Studies due January 15, 2014.  See the Awards tab for details.

Electronic submissions are preferred but a printable Proposal Form can be found Here
