Indigenous Liberal Studies Call for Proposals on Progress

ConceptProgressThe Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) Indigenous Liberal Studies Department is convening an interdisciplinary conference March 13 – 15, 2014, exploring the idea of “progress.”  The Indigenous Intervention on Progress is being planned to bring forth ideas related to the Indigenous experience with the concept of progress in culture, literature, philosophy, history, politics, economics, film, television, art, music, social theory, and business. The concept of progress has many applications and responses in the Indigenous world, including assimilation, economic development, education, cultural change, artistic expression, evolution/devolution, language, psychology and more.    

An online journal of papers from this conference will be published through IAIA.

Please submit a one-page abstract or a panel proposal with abstracts by December 2, 2013. Organized panels are encouraged. Special Undergraduate Research sections for papers and panels are available.  Please indicate on your proposal/abstract if yours is undergraduate research.
