Southwest/Texas Popular & American Culture Associations 30th Anniversary
Conference, Albuquerque, NM

February 24-28, 2009 in Albuquerque, New Mexico at the Hyatt Regency

The American Indian/Indigenous Film Area is looking for panels, papers, and
workshops on topics related to American Indian, First Nations, and
Indigenous film. We welcome proposals from all disciplines that examine,
utilize, promote, or teach Native/Indigenous film and media are welcome.
The American Indian/Indigenous Film Area is particularly interested in
bringing together Native filmmakers and Native/non-Native academics to talk
about the burgeoning field of Indigenous Film.

Some topics might include, but are not limited to:
· Native women filmmakers
· American Indian/Indigenous Film and/or filmmakers
· New Voices in Native/Indigenous film and media
· Needs, Access, and Issues in Native/Indigenous film
· The outcomes/consequences of using Native films across cultural
boundaries and in comparison to other cultural approaches.
· Teaching American Indian or Indigenous films as part of a
nonâ€'American Indian Studies course, such as Humanities, American Studies,
or English.
· Disciplinary and cultural politics as they influence how we read
Native film
· American Indians in Hollywood film
· Approaches to teaching American Indian film
· Indian and the Western (this could also apply to how Indigenous
people globally are positioned as “Indians” in national “Western” genres)
· Effects/impacts of Native representations in film/media on Native
and non-Native culture
· Showcasing new work (if you would like to facilitate a panel that
screens new work, please do so)

If you have specific ideas for topics, workshops, or panels that are not
listed here, please submit those as well.

Native filmmakers, scholars, teachers, students, professionals, and others
are encouraged to participate. Graduate students may wish to submit papers
for fellowships and awards.
