Announcing Pathways 2006: Cultural Intersections in Native North America, an upcoming conference 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 boundaries.
Areas of study will include but are not limited to: History, Literature, Anthropology, Law and Policy, and the Arts. Graduate student presenters from the U.S. and Canada will share their work in a series of plenary panels
designed to stimulate conversation and debate. Respected faculty from a variety of institutions will chair the panels and deliver brief comments.
