Call for Papers: 2012 Pueblo Indian Studies Symposium
On October 25–26, 2012, the School for Advanced Research, the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, and the Leadership Institute at the Santa Fe Indian School will host a Pueblo Indian Studies Symposium in honor of Joe Sando at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque, NM. Sando, a noted historian, was deeply committed to the study of Pueblo Nations and cultures and inspired many to pursue research and writing projects on the Pueblos. Through this symposium, Joe Sando’s legacy will be honored by highlighting current research in the field of Pueblo Indian studies.
Individuals are invited to submit proposals or abstracts of presentations to be given at the symposium on topics focused on Pueblo subject matter. Proposals will generally be of papers but may include other creative expression such as poetry. Submissions are welcome from community members, students, faculty, independent researchers, and professionals working in the field. They may be single authored or collaborations. Presentations specifically highlighting community-based projects or other applied research in the Pueblos are encouraged.
A selection of the papers and creative works will be considered for inclusion in a future volume on Pueblo Indian studies published by SAR Press.
Proposals and abstracts should include a title of the presentation, information on the presentation’s content, and the presenter’s contact information on one page. The deadline for submission is April 1, 2012. Email document to iarc[at]sarsf.org or mail to SAR-IARC, Pueblo Studies Symposium, P.O. Box 2188, Santa Fe, NM 87504.
