Native American Writing Systems and (Counter)Discourses of Identity

This session will consider the role of Native American writing systems
and recordkeeping before contact and in post-contact literatures.
Especially welcomed are papers that consider how indigenous literacies
are informed by different worldviews than Eurowestern literacies, how
Native writing is conceived of as a socially-constituted act, and how
early tribal writers invoke and deploy these methods of record as unique
rhetorical strategies. Please send an abstract and one-page vita to
pmkgsl_at_rit.edu by January 10.
