We are seeking papers for a proposed panel on The Cult of Domesticity
and Indigenous Women, to be submitted for consideration to the 2006
American Studies Association conference. We are interested in
considering how the cult of domesticity, as it is theoretically mapped
out by such authors as Ann Douglas, Lora Romero, Devon Mihesuah, K.
Tsianina Lomawaima, and Susan Tompkins, resonates specifically in
Indigenous women's narratives. We are interested in a complex
conversation about the multivalent negotiations Indigenous women have
and continue to make with the cult of domesticity. How does the cult
of domesticity for Indigenous women resonate similarly with and

"Professor Challenger was double, articulated twice,
and that did not make things any easier; people never
knew which of him was present."

This panel will explore the mappings Gilles Deleuze
and Felix Guattari traced collaboratively. This is an
interdisciplinary panel; papers devoted to explicating
and contextualizing Deleuze-Guattari's oeuvre and
those setting it in conjunction with problems in
disciplines including and beyond critical theory,
literature, glossematics, political engagement, film
studies, ecology, and psychoanalysis will be
considered.
