Meeting Description:

***It is unclear at this point in time whether we will be able to hold an in-person event for the 52nd Algonquian Conference due to the coronavirus pandemic. We would hate, however, to have to miss our annual opportunity to share research findings and language teaching inspirations, not to mention the opportunity to see old friends and make new ones. We also do not want to lose the opportunity to share our collected wisdom in the annual Papers of the Algonquian Conference.

For that reason, we will go ahead with planning a conference, with the knowledge that it may have to be partly or entirely virtual. The conference will be hosted (in some form or other) by the University of Wisconsin-Madison from Friday October 23 through Sunday October 25, 2020***

This conference is an international meeting for researchers, speakers, language learners, and community members to share papers on Algonquian peoples and cultures. Fields of interest include anthropology, archaeology, art, biography, education, ethnography, ethnobotany, folklore, geography, history, language education, linguistics, literature, music, Native studies, political science, psychology, religion, and sociology.

Call for Papers:

We invite abstracts in English, French, or any Algonquian language. Please send (as a pdf
attachment) your title and an abstract of a maximum of 300 words (excluding title and references) to the following address: Presentations will be 20 minutes long, followed by a 10-minute question period.

The subject line of your e-mail must read “Algonquian Conference Abstract Submission”
and the text of your e-mail message must include the following information:
- your name
- institutional/tribal/other affiliation
- student, faculty, or other (if other, please specify)
- telephone number
- the names and e-mail addresses of any other authors
