THEME: Crisis and Resilience
The 2023 Meeting of the American Society for Ethnohistory
Full CFP: CFP Ethnohistory 2023
The program committee of the 2023 ASE conference invites submissions for the annual meeting to take place on November 2-4, 2023 at the Turnbull Conference Center at Florida State University. THE DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS IS JUNE 15, 2023 (A preliminary program will be posted by June 30). ALL PROPOSALS SHOULD BE SUBMITTED TO: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This meeting will take place in person, with options for hybrid sessions.
We invite proposals on any topic related to ethnohistory and especially to this year’s theme: Crisis and Resilience. The program committee welcomes workshops, papers, and sessions that include Indigenous perspectives from across the Americas on any subject—including archaeological, ethnographic, historical, and documentary studies. Especially welcome are those that explore the long history of Indigenous resilience in the face of internal or external crises. We encourage
presenters to embrace a broad definition of crisis. Among other topics, sessions might explore environmental, political, diplomatic, economic, social, and cultural crises. They might also examine how Indigenous communities faced and survived immediate and long-term threats, including Indigenous strategies and manifestations of resilience—whether expressed through migration, diaspora, coalescence, ethnogenesis, violence, cultural revitalization and innovation, nationalism, pan-Indianism, and other forms of survivance. In keeping with our theme, the organizers especially seek to feature programming that engages in collaboration and dialogue with Indigenous nations and communities of present-day Florida, the Native South, and the Americas, more generally—including
collaborative sessions that involve THPOs (Tribal Historic Preservation Offices). We will consider proposals for multiple formats including panels, workshops, roundtables, and poster sessions. We encourage moving beyond the typical 20-minute paper presentation format. We will consider individual paper proposals, but strongly advise individuals to coordinate with other people working on related topics.
