CALL FOR PROPOSALS for the 2017 Native American Literature Symposium. Theme: OUR LAND AND WATER (#NoDAPL). March 2-4, 2017.

With literature as a crossroads for knowledge—art, history, politics, science, religion, film, cultural studies—we once again welcome spirited participation on all aspects of Native American studies. We invite proposals for individual papers, panel discussions, readings, exhibits, demonstrations, and workshops. We especially encourage proposals focused on current issues concerning use, appropriation, and claim to native land and water.

Proposals are due November 18, 2016.

This year’s conference will take place at the Mystic Lake Casino Hotel in Prior Lake, Minnesota.

You can learn more about the conference by visiting the NALS website.

NALS is proud to collaborate with the Association for the Study of American Indian Literatures. ASAIL is a professional academic organization created to promote the study, criticism, and research of American Indian written and oral literary traditions. ASAIL’s current membership includes leading scholars, writers, and activists committed to the interdisciplinary study of American Indian and indigenous languages, cultures, and aesthetic traditions.
