The annual Graduate Student Conference offer students from NCAIS member institutions an opportunity to present their work to the consortium’s community of faculty and students. Students are invited to present papers in any academic field relating to American Indian and Indigenous studies. We encourage the submission of proposals for papers that examine a wide variety of subjects relating to American Indian and Indigenous history and culture broadly conceived.

The conference takes place in conjunction with the NCAIS Summer Institute. Faculty liaisons in attendance will provide feedback on individual presentations relevant to their expertise. First-time presenters are encouraged to participate.

To propose a paper, please send a one-page proposal, a statement explaining the relationship of the paper to your other work, and a brief C.V. to mcnickle@newberry.org by June 2, 2014.
