We're interrupting our summer hiatus to highlight the Indigenous Bodies conference being hosted by the Native Studies Research Network at the UEA, July 8 - July 10 2009. The conference will boast 63 delegates from four continents, and feature Mick Gidley, Carter Revard, Debbie Reese as speakers. Here's the official blurb:
This international interdisciplinary conference will interrogate wide ranging presentations and representations of indigenous bodies by both Natives and non-Natives, in historical and contemporary contexts. The conference is particularly concerned with the native body as a site of persistent fascination, colonial oppression, and indigenous agency, and the endurance of these legacies within native communities.More information can be found on the AMS site, here.
