CFP: Second Annual Native and Indigenous Roundtable Series.
These Roundtables are opportunities to share your academic or artistic work, regardless of whether you do Native studies or are a Native scholar who does other types of work. If you fall into either of these two categories and are interested in being part of a panel, working group, screening, or symposium, please read on. Last year's Roundtables went well and we had some very interesting presentations.
The nitty gritty:
- There will be a few different roundtables over both semesters and these roundtables will be thematically organized (based on whomever submits). After everyone has submitted, I will create thematic groups and get back to you.
- There are a few formats these roundtables can take: more traditional academic panels with respondents, working groups where scholars or artists share their works-in-progress with each other in a more intimate setting, or screenings/exhibitions for more creatively formatted work.
- Each panel/working group/screening must have at least one Native or Indigenous person on it or it will not run. We don't want people "talking about Natives" so much as "talking with" each other.
- There is no fee for participating, nor are there funds for travel. All roundtables will be held at New York University.
