Call for Papers: “Imagery Across Time: Using Pop Culture Imagery of Native Americans in the Classroom” (AHA 2013)
I am putting together a panel proposal for the 127th annual American Historical Association conference (January 3-6, 2013), which will take place in New Orleans.
I’m looking for 2 or 3 people to participate in a panel by giving presentations examining imagery of Native Americans in popular culture platforms: film, music, art, literature, material culture, advertising, or anything else you can think of that is part of American pop culture. It doesn’t have to be modern – 18th, 19th, or 20th century is fine.
You can focus on one particular example (a film, or a book), or a range of examples that demonstrate change – or its lack – across time.
Using your examples and my own, I’ll create a pedagogical presentation to wrap up the panel focusing on how we can help our students interpret what those images tell us about Native American and U.S. culture and history across time.
Graduate students are welcome to submit abstracts – you don’t need to have used this imagery in a classroom yourself to participate in this panel.
Any academic discipline is welcome! Approach does not need to be historical!
Presentations should be 15 minutes long. Please send the following materials:
o Name (as you wish it to appear in the program)
o Affilliation, city, state, and country
o current e-mail address
o biographical paragraph or CV summary LIMIT 250 words
o presentation title
o Abstract LIMIT 300 words (this will be submitted to the AHA program committee with the panel proposal)
o audiovisual needs, if any
to Deena Parmelee, Ph.D. at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 10th, 2012.
Please be advised that the AHA does not allowing anyone to present more than one panel, so if you are putting together a panel of your own, or plan to be part of another, please do not submit an abstract for this panel.
