The Native Studies Research Network, UK, is hosting "Indigenous Bodies:Reviewing, Relocating, Reclaiming," 8-10 July 2009, at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, England.
This 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.
