The Third Annual Storytellers of the Americas Conference, hosted by the American Studies Graduate Student Association at the University at Buffalo, is pleased to announce a call for papers. The conference is scheduled for March 30th and 31st, 2007.
We invite paper submissions that address the importance of women in Indigenous oral tradition. Sky Woman, Yellow Woman, Anuk-Ite, Sedna, the Three Sisters, Selu, Changing Woman, and many others have described and defined women’s roles in traditional Indigenous societies, and which remain essential to contemporary Indigenous communities. Through this conference, we wish to consider traditional understandings of Indigenous women in oral culture, the silencing of their voices through colonial hegemony, and current literary, political, social, economic, and artistic resonances of the oral tradition.
Submit abstracts of no more than 500 words in length by December 15, 2006 to: email@example.com; AmberMeadowAdams@aol.com; nan3buffalo.edu; or firstname.lastname@example.org
