Call for Papers: “Interpreters in Western History”
The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art invites submissions of images + short reflections/captions for possible inclusion in a spring 2023 publication on the topic "Religion and the American West." Religion has helped shape the culture of the western United States, and religious practices and identity have also been impacted by being incorporated, sometimes forcibly, into the legal boundaries of the US: we want to explore those changes through personal, individual stories. This publication will accompany an exhibition designed around the same theme.
