Hosted by the University of Notre Dame, in the homeland of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi

Call for Poster Submissions
Submission deadline: August 1, 2016

In the conference, we bring together an interdisciplinary set of scholars to consider indigenous wisdom from multiple disciplines and to integrate this wisdom with modern knowhow. The speakers were selected for their specialty areas which range from science, history, education, psychology, and anthropology. The purpose of the conference and accompanying books is to bring to a wider audience an awareness of “first ways,” what we know about their effects on flourishing and how to integrate them into modern life for global flourishing.

Submit a short abstract (150 words) and a long abstract (up to 500 words) to by August 1, 2016. Please include your name, address and email. Submitters will be notified of a decision on a rolling basis. 

Please indicate whether you are a graduate student and would like to be considered for a stipend to assist with the cost of the symposium.
