Indigenous studies in the United Kingdom and Europe: pasts, presents and futures

Thu 22 September - Fri 23 September

SG1&SG2, Alison Richards Building

The conference seeks to delineate the field of Indigenous studies, its current manifestations and what issues and forms it may take in the years to come. In particular, we seek to interrogate what this discipline means in the context of the United Kingdom and Europe’s deep and complex relationship with Indigenous peoples in many parts of the world. This interdisciplinary conference intends to have an impact on the fields of literature, history, heritage studies, legal studies, divinity and beyond. Through the ISDG’s unique breadth of experience and inter-disciplinary specialisms, it is our intention that the emerging research which forms and coheres through this conference will expand both the field of Indigenous studies and indeed inform public policy by being brought to as wide an audience as possible.
