ISN PROGRAM AT APSA 2019, September 10-13, 2019, in San Francisco, CA

The Indigenous Studies Network (ISN) plans to put on one or more panels talking circle and a business meeting at the 2020 American Political Science Association (APSA) Meeting, September 10 – 13, 2020, in San Francisco, CA,

The call for papers: In line with the conference theme of “Democracy, Difference and Destabilization”, the Indigenous Studies Network seeks papers that place Indigenous groups and their politics within the challenges that confront democracies and democratic institutions in the 21st century. We seek proposals from all subfields in political science including public policy, law, political participation, intergovernmental relations, political theory, and others that address the myriad political, legal and policy challenges faced by Indigenous groups now and in the recent past. We welcome rigorous, theoretically grounded work regardless of topic or approach including papers from the U.S., Canada, and around the world that help us better understand Indigenous groups.

For more information contact ISN Chair Richard Witmer, Creighton University, RichardWitmer@creighton.edu, or http://www.apsanet.org.
