Eighth Native American Symposium and Film Festival: Images, Imaginations and Beyond — Deadline June 15, 2009
Papers are invited for the Eighth Native American Symposium to be held November 4-6, 2009 at Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant, Oklahoma. The symposium theme is Images, Imaginations, and Beyond, but papers, presentations, panel sessions, and creative productions addressing all aspects of Native American studies are welcome, including but not limited to history, literature, law, medicine, education, religion, politics, social science, and the fine arts.

Along with the regular conference sessions on Thursday and Friday, we will also begin presenting Wednesday night a wide selection of films by Native American filmmakers from across the Native film community.
