NAASA [Native American Art Studies Association]
17th Biennial Meeting
Ottawa, Ontario – October 26-29, 2011
Young Scholars Workshop
Organizer: Kristine Ronan, University of Michigan
This workshop is for Ph.D. students, at any stage of their process, who are pursuing Native American art as a primary field of inquiry. Our goal is to foster a dialogue about the state of the field and its related issues. Participants will be asked to read several articles and book excerpts in advance of the session, in order to discuss issues around several questions: What do we, as future scholars-in-training, think about the state of the field, and where do we see ourselves fitting? How do we approach the narration of Native American art history and individual artists within that history? What role does our own personal situatedness need to play (or not play) in relation to our work and the scholarly enterprise?
Submit 50-word statement of interest to participate in the Young Scholars Workshop by June 15, 2011 directly to: Kristine Ronan, at firstname.lastname@example.org
