Fulbright Canada, and the Center for the Study of Canada at the State University of New York College at Plattsburgh in partnership with the University of Hawai`i at M?noa, are pleased to announce the third in our annual Canada Colloquium series. These scholarly colloquia are aimed at addressing critical contemporary social, political and economic issues of relevance to Canada, the United States, and the international community. Our 2018 colloquium sets out to examine a broad range of indigenous issues, and, in particular, those that affect indigenous persons in North America, including the far north and with special reference to indigenous persons in Hawai`i. The colloquium, entitled Canada, the United States, and Indigenous Peoples: Sovereignty, Sustainability, and Reconciliation, will be convened at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel on the island of Hawai`i, from March 7-10, 2018. The colloquium will commence on Wednesday, March 7th and conclude on Saturday, March 10th.
The colloquium, which is open to proposals with a significant Canadian, American, or Canada-U.S. focus, seeks to explore a wide range of scholarly questions around the theme of Canada, the United States, and Indigenous issues. Disciplinary, multi-disciplinary, and interdisciplinary scholarly inquiries dedicated to examining the relationships between Canada, the United States, or Canada and the United States, Indigenous Peoples and complex issues surrounding sovereignty, sustainability, rights, and reconciliation – in an anthropological, cultural, economic, geographic, historical, literary, natural sciences, political or social context – are especially encouraged.
