Native American Studies
Albuquerque, NM, March 2001
The Southwest/Texas Popular Culture Association-American Culture Association March 7-11, 2001 Sheraton Oldtown Hotel Albuquerque, NM USA Native American Studies is a growing, interdisciplinary area, encompassing all aspects of Native American Indian cultures, including, but not limited to, literature, history, anthropology, archaeology, religion, philosophy, music, and theatre. The Native Studies section of The Southwest/Texas Popular Culture Association-American Culture Association invites proposals for papers and panels from all disciplines of Native Studies for its annual conference to be held March 7-11, 2001 at the Sheraton Oldtown Hotel in Albuquerque, NM. Last year there were eleven Native Studies panels: "Native Iconographies: Cultural Encounters over Graphic Art, Architecture, and Archaelogy"; "Spirits and Questions of Place"; "The Cultural Politics of Identity"; "Place, Hypertext, and Indian Education"; "The Fiction of Louis Owens"; "Mapping and Mediating Borders"; "Native American Studies: On the Path Home"; "The Media and the Messages"; "Mediating the Sacred in Native Literature"; "Allotment, Identity, and Race Relations in Indian Territory"; and "American Indians Past and Present: Applications from Ethnohistory." Additionally, Native Studies papers were read in other sections such as those on Southwestern American Literature, Race and the Southwest, and Captivity Narratives. Duane Niatum, internationally-known Klallam poet, gave a wonderful poetry reading for our special event. This year looks quite promising as well. The meeting in Albuquerque draws a wonderful group of scholars. We are very lucky to again be able to use the Sheraton, an elegant Southwestern hotel located within walking distance of Albuquerque's Historic Old Town, containing over two hundred shops, restaurants, art galleries, the Albuquerque Museum and New Mexico Museum of Natural History.
