Dec 10 | Call for Papers - Perspectives on Native Landscapes

Call for papers for the Multicultural Community Center and the Native American Student Development office's symposium this coming February: Perspectives on Native Landscapes: Exploring Relationships Between Our Peoples and the Environment.

Perspectives on Native Landscapes seeks to highlight the multiple contexts through which we approach environmentalism as well as open conversations around relationships with our landscapes, homelands and natural resource management concerning Native communities.

The symposium’s organizing committee at UC Berkeley seeks submissions from all fields whose subject matter deals with Native communities and their environments, topics being open but not limited to topics regarding the relationships between historical cultural practices, legal issues, and contemporary environmental practices. Perspectives on Native Landscapes is primarily structured as a venue for graduate students, community scholars, tribal members and new junior faculty to present their work, as well as being an opportunity to hear current research and practices for undergraduate and graduate students studying in areas where these issues are relevant. Proposals for papers, panels and poster presentations from scholars and students in all fields is encouraged including Forestry & Natural Resources, Environmental Science, Justice and Sustainability, Environmental Justice, Conservation, History, Philosophy, Ethnic Studies, and Native American Studies.

If interested in presenting, please fill out this form by December 10.
