Call For Papers

On the topic: Maintaining Connections: Natives in Academia and Community Unification, Activism, and Responsibility
November 5-6, 2004
Hosted by the Cornell Council of American Indian Graduate and Professional Students

In an effort to establish connections among American Indian students in higher education across campuses, the Cornell Council of American Indian Graduate and Professional Students will be hosting a colloquium open to all working in the broadly defined field of Native American studies, to include scientists, authors, musicians, artists, and scholars in law, humanities, and professional training. It is our hope that students from partnering universities will host future conferences in this series.

The primary goals of the conference are to bolster a sense of American Indian community and collectively establish a presence to represent indigenous voices in matters of curriculum, recruitment and retention of American Indian students and faculty in the university. We envision this organization and this colloquium as an opportunity to showcase the variety and richness of work in the field, and as the beginning of a dialogue to address the political and social issues confronting Native students in higher education. We hope that by unifying a collective voice, potential opportunities will increase, and political action will become more feasible.

A limited number of hotels rooms will be reserved for presenters; attendees must make their own arrangements. The website lists a number of accommodations, attractions, maps and general travel information for the area.

Submissions of poster projects and papers must be submitted by July 1, 2004.

A registration fee of $25.00 per person will be required by September 1, 2004 to help offset the cost of a catered dinner Friday night. This dinner will be open to all, at no additional cost, but we will only have room for fifty attendees. Registration to attend the conference must also be completed by September 1.

Please send proposals and/or papers as attached Word documents to

To register, please send name, address, phone, and email address, and number attending to this email address as well.
