Call for Papers: AIS Seminar Series, AY 2012-13

Friday, April 27, 2012
McNickle Seminar Series

American Indian Studies Seminar Series, AY 2012-13
Submission Deadline: April 27, 2012

The seminar provides a forum for works-in-progress that explore topics in American Indian Studies. We encourage the submission of proposals for seminar papers that examine a wide variety of subjects relating to American Indian and Indigenous history and culture broadly conceived.  We welcome proposals from scholars working in a wide range of academic fields, and are particularly interested in interdisciplinary approaches.

The seminar is open to graduate students, faculty members and independent scholars. Graduate students and junior faculty in the early-writing stages who wish to present their work are especially encouraged to apply. To maximize time for discussion, papers are circulated electronically in advance. Priority is given to individuals who are at a stage of their research at which they can best profit from discussion. The seminar meets during the academic year from September through May, usually on Wednesday afternoons from 5:30pm to 6:30pm, at the Newberry Library.

To propose a paper, please send a one-page proposal, a statement explaining the relationship of the paper to your other work, and a brief C.V. via email to: Please send all materials as a PDF attachment.

If you are interested in proposing a paper and have questions, please contact McNickle Center Director, Dr. Scott Manning Stevens (
