Meeting Description:

The 2014 AIATSIS National Indigenous Studies Conference will look at how far we have come in the area of Indigenous studies in Australia in the past 50 years. It will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the legislated establishment of the Australian Institute of Aboriginal Studies (now AIATSIS) as well as 50 years of leadership and excellence in Indigenous studies by AIATSIS.

The conference will be held from Wednesday 26 - Friday 28 March 2014 at the National Convention Centre in Canberra, with a welcome reception on Tuesday 25 March on the grounds outside the AIATSIS building.

The conference will bring together multi-disciplinary expertise from across the Indigenous studies sector, including researchers, policy makers, community members, academics, representative organisations, consultants, traditional owners and service providers. Whether your interest in the conference topic is from the perspective of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education, health, cultural heritage, arts, policy, sport, economics, language, anthropology, archives, IT or other equally relevant sectors, the conference presents a unique opportunity to communicate information about your research, projects and programs with a wide audience and to benefit from discussion around shared areas of interest.

Call for Papers:

We invite you to submit an abstract of a research-based paper for consideration for the 2014 National Indigenous Studies Conference program.

- Health and well-being
- Language
- Native title
- Education
- History
- Art
- Law

We encourage you to submit proposals for papers, workshops and panels for consideration by the conference convenors.

Please submit your proposal with an abstract (up to 200 words), biography for each presenter (up to 150 words for each presenter) and the ‘call for papers’ submission form (please ensure all presenters sign off on application) to 50yearsonaiatsis.gov.au by Friday 25 October 2013. We recommend that you read the guidelines set out in the call for papers document on our website before you start the submission process.
