Pathways 2006: Cultural Intersections in Native North America
April 7-9, 2006

The Yale Group for the Study of Native America invites submissions for an
upcoming conference- Pathways 2006: Cultural Intersections in Native North
America to be held April 7-9, 2006 in New Haven, CT. The goals of this
conference are: to provide a comfortable forum for graduate students working at
the intersection of American Indian or Alaska Native Studies and other Ethnic
and Area Studies, such as African American Studies, Asian American Studies, and
Latin American Studies, to share their work, and to foster student-to-student
and student-to-professional relationships by encouraging networking and
community-building for those working across traditional disciplinary

Areas of study may include but are not limited to: History, Literature and
Theatre Studies, Anthropology, Law and Policy, and the Arts. Papers may present
a portion of the student?s original research, demonstrate emergent theoretical
and methodological approaches, or advance pedagogical strategies for reaching
students across departmental divides.

Individual papers rather than panels are preferred. We are especially desirous
of papers that demonstrate and discuss emergent approaches in the study of
Native North America, and/or those that demonstrate an active involvement with
Native communities. In order to foster a regionally diverse community of
graduate student presenters, travel expenses will be paid for students whose
papers are selected.

We are very pleased to announce that Philip Deloria (Dakota) will deliver the
keynote address to open Pathways 2006. Professor Deloria is the Director of the
Program in American Culture at the University of Michigan and also teaches in
the Department of History. In addition to co-editing _The Blackwell Companion
to American Indian History_ (Cambridge: Blackwell, 2002) with Neal Salisbury,
he is also the author of _Indians in Unexpected Places_ (University Press of
Kansas, 2004) and _Playing Indian_ (Yale University Press, 1998). Professor
Deloria received his Ph.D. in American Studies at Yale in 1994.

CVs and abstracts of no more than one page should be submitted by October 28,
2005 to:
