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.
