SPRING CONFERENCE, « HUMAN RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES IN LATIN AMERICA »

MAY 8, 2012

ENCINA HALL, STANFORD UNIVERSITY

Indigenous peoples around the world have often been dispossessed of their land, leading to ongoing conflict over control and usage of land and resources. Indigenous peoples in Latin America are no exception; they are among the most disadvantaged and vulnerable peoples in the region. Indigenous peoples in Latin America rank highest on underdevelopment indicators such as incarceration, illiteracy, unemployment, poverty and disease. They face discrimination in schools and are exploited in the workplace. Their sacred lands and artifacts are plundered from them. In many Latin American countries, indigenous peoples are not even permitted to study their own language.

The Stanford Spring conference « Human Rights of Indigenous Peoples in Latin America », invites scholars from all disciplines to examine the common trends, actors, challenges and changes among indigenous populations in Latin America and the Caribbean. We encourage submissions from the liberal arts, social sciences, professional fields and sciences to address interdisciplinary issues including economic development and globalization, bio-piracy, cultural rights, poverty and discrimination, and injustice. In addition, we would like to explore how agents of change utilize various methodologies to analyze these interdisciplinary issues and propose potential solutions to counter discriminatory practices.

Guidelines and Dates:
We welcome abstracts from all disciplines for panel discussions and presentations relating to the conference theme. Abstracts of up to 250 words should be sent in Microsoft Word format. Please include your name, phone number, title and institutional affiliation in your e-mail.

Abstracts may be sent to Kristina Stevens at: lasconference2012@gmail.com by Friday, March 9th, 2012.

Final copies of completed papers may be sent to lasconference2012@gmail.com by Friday, April 6th, 2012.

Papers should be approximately 3,000-5,000 words. There are no specific guidelines in regards to the format of your submission. However, please keep in mind that presentations should be no longer than 15 minutes in length.
