Indigenous Studies Seminar Series
Please scroll down for the CFP for the 2020-2021 Seminar.
Inspired by the work of the Center for Native American and Indigenous Research (CNAIR), the APS Library & Museum's Indigenous Studies Seminar Series serves scholars and researchers working on projects in or aligned with Native American and Indigenous Studies.
Meetings of the inaugural series are held roughly once a month between October and May from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m., followed by a reception. Most meetings center around a pre-circulated paper, which will be made available for download two weeks prior to the event.
Meetings in 2020-2021 will be held on Zoom and are open to scholars in all fields and at all career levels.
Requests to receive access to the paper or to present work-in-progress should be sent to Adrianna Link, Head of Scholarly Programs, at email@example.com.
2020-2021 Seminar Series will be announced soon!
