15th NATIVE AMERICAN LITERATURE SYMPOSIUM
March 27-29, 2014
Mystic Lake Casino Hotel
Minneapolis, MN

MANY VOICES, ONE CENTER
Call for Proposals

DEADLINE: November 25, 2013
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.

Scheduled speakers include Eric Gansworth who just published a young adult novel, If I Ever Get Out of Here, and First Nations Manitoba writers Duncan Mercredi, Katherena Vermette, and Rosanna Deerchild whose work appears in Manitowapow.

Nominations/Applications for the Beatrice Medicine Award for Scholarship in American Indian Studies due January 15, 2014. See the website for details.
