Call for Papers and Sessions

Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) Museum Studies Program and the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art invite your participation in an Inter-Congress of the World Archaeological Congress (WAC) on the topic Indigenous Peoples and Museums: Unraveling the Tensions. The Inter-Congress will take place in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA, in conjunction with the Eiteljorg’s Indian Market and Festival (25-26 June). The organizers invite proposals for sessions, workshops, demonstrations, poster papers, and contributed papers on topics related to the relationships between museums and Indigenous peoples. All proposals will be evaluated for their relevance to the theme by the Inter-Congress Academic Committee, which is chaired by Julie Hollowell. The deadline for session or workshop proposals is 15 April 2011 and for all other papers and posters, 1 May 2011. Proposals may be submitted using an online form, but session, demonstration, and workshop organizers should e-mail the academic committee at academic@wacmuseums.info. We especially encourage participation by students, and there will be a student session with awards for best student papers and posters.

Conference registration is now open with reduced registration rates for early registrants until 15 March. Limited travel support may be available for Indigenous people who are presenters. For additional information and resources, see the Inter-Congress web site at http://wacmuseums.info.
