Globalizing the Word: Transnationalism and Native American Literature
This symposium will examine the influences of globalization and transnationalism on Native American literature and critical theory. Including fifteen distinguished scholars representing a variety of subfields, this symposium will rethink the reigning critical paradigm in Native American literary studies – tribal nationalism – and consider the promises (or potential pitfalls) of taking more decidedly transnational approaches to the production, criticism, and teaching of Native American literature in a global age.
There will be four plenary panels and two keynote addresses across two days. Speakers include: Chadwick Allen, Eric Cheyfitz, Matt Cohen, Philip Deloria, Lincoln Faller, Kate Flint, Shari Huhndorf, Maureen Konkle, Arnold Krupat, Scott Lyons, Elvira Pulitano, Phillip Round, Sean Teuton, Gerald Vizenor, and Jace Weaver. This event is free and open to the public.
Sponsored by LSA, Rackham, Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs, English Language and Literature, American Culture, Native American Studies, Office of the Vice President for Research, American Indian Studies Interdisciplinary Group, National Center for Institutional Diversity, Institute for the Humanities, Eisenberg Institute, History, and Anthropology.
