Pathways 2006: Cultural Intersections in Native North America
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 studentís 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 elected.
