Pathways 2006: Cultural Intersections in Native North America

The Yale Group for the Study of Native America invites submissions for
an upcoming conference- Pathways 2006: Cultural Intersections in
Native North America to be held April 7-9, 2006 in New Haven, CT. The
goals of this conference are: to provide a comfortable forum for
graduate students working at the intersection of American Indian or
Alaska Native Studies and other Ethnic and Area Studies, such as
African American Studies, Asian American Studies, and Latin American
Studies, to share their work, and to foster student-to-student and
student-to-professional relationships by encouraging networking and
community-building for those working across traditional disciplinary
boundaries.
 
Areas of study may include but are not limited to: History, Literature
and Theatre Studies, Anthropology, Law and Policy, and the Arts.
Papers may present a portion of the student’s original research,
demonstrate emergent theoretical and methodological approaches, or
advance pedagogical strategies for reaching students across
departmental divides.
 
Individual papers rather than panels are preferred. We are especially
desirous of papers that demonstrate and discuss emergent approaches in
the study of Native North America, and/or those that demonstrate an
active involvement with Native communities. In order to foster a
regionally diverse community of graduate student presenters, travel
expenses will be paid for students whose papers are selected.
 
CVs and abstracts of *no more than one page* should be submitted by
October 15, 2005 to:
