Eighth Native American Symposium and Film Festival:
Images, Imaginations, and Beyond

Papers are invited for the Eighth Native American Symposium to be held
November 5-6, 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. The keynote speaker will be Heather Rae, the Cherokee film
director and producer, whose film Frozen River received two Academy
Award nominations this year. 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, including
established, emerging, and student filmmakers.

All papers presented at the symposium will be eligible for inclusion
in the volume of published proceedings, which will also be posted on
our website at www.se.edu/nas/.
