The 2004 MAASA Conference will consider the lives, experiences, identities, and status of indigenous Mexican, American Indian, and Canadian First Nations peoples today; their relationships with federal, state, and local governments; and their cultural, economic, political, social relationships with other indigenous peoples and their allies throughout the world. We invite papers, panels, roundtables, and workshops that will examine the continuities and changes that have occurred in the lives of indigenous peoples since 1965, revisit and critically assess The American Indian Today, explore the ways in which dialogue and cooperative efforts among academics, tribal members, and political officials might fruitfully be developed.
Although papers and complete sessions on any aspect of the conference theme would be especially appropriate, MAASA also welcomes presentations, complete panels, roundtables, or workshops on all aspects of interdisciplinary research and teaching, political and cultural activism, museums, and archives relevant to American Studies. MAASA also is especially interested in the political and cultural work people are doing outside of the academy. We invite the participation of activists, artists, and others concerned with the well-being of Native nations and tribal communities.
For each proposal for papers, talks, panels, roundtables, and workshops, please submit:
Address and telephone number and/or e-mail address
Institutional affiliation if applicable
Title of paper, talk, panel, roundtable, or workshop
