2nd Annual Native American Studies
Graduate Student Symposium:
Weaving the Roots of Knowledge
April 26-27, 2013

Call for papers is due February 8! There is still time to submit!
This year’s theme is “Weaving the Roots of Knowledge.” Weaving can be understood as the interlacing of strands to form a texture, fabric, or design. With regards to Native American Studies and Indigenous research, some of the questions we seek to dialogue about throughout our two-day symposium include, but are not limited to: How and why do we weave knowledges together?; How and why do we interpret the complexities of narratives, textures, fabrics, and designs?, What knowledges are gained from interweaving disciplines, methodologies, and methods of research?, and when is it necessary to unweave narratives?
UC Davis and UC Berkeley Graduate students from all disciplines are encouraged to participate in this hemispheric dialogue. Papers should be in English and 12-15 minutes in length.
