ISN PROGRAM AT APSA 2021, September 30-October 3, 2021, Seattle, WA
MOVED TO BEING VIRTUAL

The Indigenous Studies Network (ISN) is putting on several panels in a mini-conference and a talking circle/business meeting at the 2021 American Political Science Association (APSA) Meeting, September 30 – October 3, 2021, in , WA, with many sessions virtual.

Indigenous Politics Virtual Mini-Conference: Settler Colonialism, Indigenous Politics, and Political Science: Critical Histories and New Directions (also an APSA Theme Panel), Wed, September 29, 10:00 to 11:30am PDT (11:00am to 12:30pm MDT),
The Mini-Conference opens with a roundtable to discuss the discipline’s recent and future engagement with settler colonial and Indigenous studies. It is designed to cultivate disciplinary pluralism by bringing together scholars from across subfields, methodological and epistemological traditions, and with varying regional expertise to address areas that have long been underrepresented in political science. After recent critical accounts of disciplinary neglect and erasure, and amid a broader interdisciplinary surge of interest in settler colonialism and Indigeneity, what developments have there been in different sectors of political science?

Chair: Kennan Ferguson, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

Particpants: Kouslaa Kessler-Mata, University of San Francisco; Kevin M. Bruyneel, Babson College; Tulia G. Falleti, University of Pennsylvania; Sheryl R. Lightfoot, University of British Columbia; Nathaniel Shils, University of Pennsylvania; and Marcela Torres .

Indigenous Politics Mini-Conference: Self-Definition is Self-Determination (Virtual Panel, also a Theme Panel), Wed, September 29, 2:00 to 3:30pm PDT (3:00 to 4:30pm MDT)

The second panel focuses on Indigenous political identity, which is shaped by varying experiences of sovereignty, colonialism, and racism. Also, Indigenous political identity has been the target of potent nation-state campaigns of subjugation and erasure. These papers consider how Indigenous peoples today define their political identity. Indigenous self-definition is an act of self-determination that engages and challenges the past and ongoing agendas of nation-states. With awareness of Indigenous epistemologies, these scholars deconstruct and reconstruct both quantitative and qualitative research methods.

Chair: Thomas Klemm, University of Michigan

Presentations: " Voting Reservations: The Identity Politics of Land," Loren Collingwood, UC Riverside and Sean David Long, University of California, Riverside.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

The Puliima language conference is held every two years, last held in 2019, unfortunately because of COVID-19 and the many factors still surrounding this situation both in Australia and internationally, the decision was made to move Puliima back a year. This shift in timing will mean Puliima will now coincide with the United Nations recent declaration for the International Decade of Indigenous Languages (IDIL) commencing in 2022 through to 2032.

From all that attended Puliima in Darwin in 2019 we received an overwhelming response to once again hold the event in Darwin, and we excitedly share with you all that PULiiMA 2022 will be back in Darwin

We will announce more precise information about Puliima 2022 over the coming months but we ask you all to set aside August 2022 for this amazing opportunity to once again come together for the Puliima conference

So please hang in for one more year and prepare for Australia's premiere event for welcoming the
International Decade of Indigenous Languages 2022 - 2032.
