Indigenous Borderlands in North America Symposium


Start Date: Nov 02, 2022 - 12:00am
End Date: Nov 05, 2022 - 05:00pm

Location: National Hispanic Cultural Center - Albuquerque, New Mexico

This symposium seeks to develop new borderland and border-crossing approaches to continental North America that center Indigenous peoples, homelands, political concerns, and related dynamics – temporally and spatially expanding borderlands frameworks.

Bringing historians in strategic conversation with scholars of other disciplines and with Indigenous community members, we ask how cross-disciplinary and community-facing dialogue can advance humanistic knowledge, developing new ways to envision borders, crossings, histories, and futures in contexts of social and environmental change.

This launches a series of international conferences on Indigenous borderlands in American and global contexts.
