Violence and Hatred in Early Virginia

CFP: ASE in Nashville

I am presently seeking panelists for the 2016 Annual Meeting of the American Society for Ethnohistory in Nashville.

This year's theme focuses on Indigenous spaces. I am proposing a session that takes this concept and applies it to periods of violence and removal from those spaces within Native histories. I would like to examine how ritual, whether those rituals be through religious ceremonies or everyday symbolic practices, offered affirmations of group identity and paths to healing in times of trauma.
