Alternative Sovereignties Conference- May 8-10, 2014
The “Alternative Sovereignties: Decolonization Through Indigenous Vision and Struggle” Conference will be held at the University of Oregon on May 8-10, 2014. This conference will explore both “alternative sovereignties” and “alternatives to sovereignty” that might better meet the political, cultural and social aspirations of American Indian and First Nations communities. The first goal of the conference is to further academic discussions about American Indian and First Nations sovereignty in all of its manifestations, and position Native peoples at the center of those debates. The second goal is to build intellectual and institutional relationships throughout the broader Pacific Northwest. With the latter goal in mind, this conference is being held in cooperation with indigenous studies programs at the University of Victoria, the University of British Columbia, and the University of California at Davis.
