Call for Proposals
DEADLINE: November 18th, 2016

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, as well as current issues in Indian Country such as language revitalization, mascot debates, and academic freedom for indigenous scholars.

Nominations/Applications for the Beatrice Medicine Award for Scholarship in American Indian Studies due January 15, 2016. The deadline for the Morning Star Flash Fiction Award is also January 15, 2016. More on awards here.

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