Re: CFP - American Society of Ethnohistory 2015 Conference

I'm interested in organizing a panel for the 2015 American Society of Ethnohistory Conference (Las Vegas, Nevada), based loosely around various components of settler-colonialism theory. I'm especially interested in different and new ways the theory can be conceived. I myself am interested in the idea of colonial time, and how it is imposed on indigenous societies in a number of different ways. If anyone would like to be a part of such a panel, please contact me at: dietz1at@cmich.edu
