Panels now forming on topics related to American Indians Today. I am
looking for panels or papers that examine the influence that American pop
culture has on aspects of contemporary American Indian life ways and vice
versa.

Proposals may examine any aspect of American Indian life ways and pop
culture as represented or interpreted in: the arts and performing arts
(storytelling, myth, legend, theater, music); poetry; oral tradition;
myth; legend; philosophy; sciences, arts; fashion; artifacts; foods;
journalism; media (radio, television); photography; cultural, spiritual or
identity appropriation; stereotypes; mascots; tribal politics; history;
gaming; Indians in the military; activist movements; social influences;
reservation, rural and urban influences; languages; assimilation,
adaptation, and syncretism; sovereignty, peoplehood and any influence one
may observe that has its genesis in American popular culture as adapted by
contemporary American Indians.

Send abstracts and proposals for panels of 100-250 words. Inquiries or
submissions may be directed to me at the address below by 15 November 2007:
