Notice: Due to changes in the Facebook API, we are no longer able to import events in an efficient way. This was how most of our listings were sourced, so it results in a much less populated calendar. Since Facebook is still tweaking its API, we are waiting to see if this will be fixed before seeking other solutions. We apologize for any inconvenience. More info.

Restoring Respect in Indian Country & Beyond

October 31 @ 4:00 pm - November 2 @ 8:00 pm

Restoring respect for the earth and its inhabitants calls for an examination of the linkages between the natural environment, good health, sustainable economic development, culture and social change, as a reflection of shared aspirations for a decent life.

This conference focuses on a great variety of governance issues from the perspectives of fairness, justice, and equity in Indian Country and beyond. Papers that inform analytical theory and/or “normative” or ethical frameworks from all disciplines and interdisciplinary perspectives and across all paradigms are encouraged.

In addition to the conference theme, the conference committee welcomes proposals addressing a broad array of topics. If your research and/or teaching deals with social justice, social inequities and/or equities, or fairness, but you focus on areas other than those delineated here, we would welcome your presentation and see it as an opportunity to deepen our understanding. We are interested in a diversity of cross-national, comparative, regional, domestic and local perspectives that may focus on discrete issues, policies, practices/processes, organizations and individuals.
