2003 CIC Graduate Student Conference in American Indian Studies
The Newberry Library's D'Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian History will host the fourth annual Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) graduate student conference April 25 - 26, 2003 at the Newberry Library in downtown Chicago.
The CIC American Indian Studies Consortium is an inter-university program for graduate students in the eleven "Big Ten" universities, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the University of Chicago. Headquartered at the D'Arcy McNickle Center, this consortium features fellowships, seminars, workshops, and conferences for CIC graduate students and faculty from member institutions.
The conference will feature over two-dozen graduate student presentations that explore literature, art, history, and cultural issues relating to American Indian communities and traditions. Among the many topics to be addressed, student papers will examine language and cultural revitalization, depictions of American Indians in art and literature, particular tribal relations with the environment and natural resources, cultural resistance and intercultural relations, repatriation, and gaming.
The conference will include a discussion of academic publishing by Gary Dunham, editor-in-chief and acquiring editor for Native Studies at the University of Nebraska Press.
In addition, the conference will feature a musical performance by internationally-recognized American Indian performing artist Bill Miller on Friday, April 25 at 7:00 p.m. The performance is open to the public. Tickets are available for $10. For more information on the conference or concert, please contact the D’Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian History at 312-255-3564.
