Bridges and Walls Across the Americas: Dialogues of Survivance, Endurance, and Resistance

This event has concluded. Thank you for attending and participating in ERIP 2019 at Gonzaga University!

ERIP 2019 seeks to bring together scholars from across disciplines, community-based knowledge producers, and activists whose work addresses contemporary and historical conceptions of indigeneity, ethnicity, and race and how these notions intersect with various political, cultural, social, legal, and economic projects that have engendered divisions, inequities, violence, and dispossessions within and across nation-states and the hemisphere. Submissions might explore impacts and legacies of colonialism and decolonization, imperialism, state-formation, citizenship regimes, populism, neoliberalism, extractivism, democratization, and/or pluriculturalism; as well as historical and contemporary contexts of resistances, non-Western paradigms, insurgencies, and civic and social movements undertaken by Indigenous and minority communities across the Americas. ERIP 2019 intends to provide a forum for discussion, debate, and critical engagement with respect to best paths moving forward in the face of complex challenges facing our contemporary world. Panels, papers, and posters on topics that engage the conference theme, “Bridges and Walls Across the Americas: Dialogues of Survivance, Endurance, and Resistance” are especially welcome and encouraged.

The submission deadline has passed. Thank you.

  • Available formats: Panel, Individual Paper, Roundtable, and Individual Poster. Each submission should clearly indicate its chosen format.
