The APRU Indigenous Knowledges Working Group is pleased to announce an inaugural Asia-Pacific Indigenous Studies Seminar.

Seminar Objectives:

This seminar provides a forum for sharing works-in-progress and networking researchers committed to working with, by, and for Indigenous Peoples and communities from the Asia-Pacific region. We are particularly interested in proposals from Indigenous scholars working in a broad range of academic fields and community contexts, and we welcome projects that highlight Indigenous-led methodologies, Indigenous language revitalization, place-based research, teaching, and learning, and related topics.

Seminar Format:

The seminar is open to graduate students, faculty members, and independent scholars, whether campus- or community-based. To maximize time for discussion, papers are circulated electronically one week in advance. All seminar meetings will be held on zoom (webinar format); all seminar participants will need to register in advance to receive materials and links.
