43th American Indian Workshop : Northern Perspectives, First Nations in WW II and Current Research

co-organized by and Institut Grand-Ducal - Section Linguistique, Ethnologie et Onomastique, and hosted by - big thank you -

The American Indian Workshop (AIW) was founded in 1980 at the Amsterdam Meeting of the European Association for American Studies. There were nine participants at the first meeting, but the AIW has since become the largest conference in Europe for researchers concerned with topics related to the Native Peoples of North America. The AIW also draws scholars from across the globe, working in diverse disciplines such as history, literature, anthropology, ethnology, art history, political science, geography, gender studies, museology, ethnomusicology, religion, law, linguistics, political science, cultural studies, philosophy, Canadian and American Studies, Native American Studies, Inuit Studies, and performance studies as well as communication and media studies. As such, the AIW provides an important platform for both established academics and young scholars for sharing their expertise, and benefiting from critical engagement.

The 43th edition of the AIW will be held in Luxembourg from 1 to 4 June 2022. 

1. The theme of the workshop, “Northern Perspectives” englobes research about all

  • Environmental and climate changes, the economy, social cultural aspects, just to name a few.
  • Interdisciplinary approaches are strongly encouraged. Experts from all disciplines and regions.

2. Next to this regional topic, there will be ample time dedicated to “Current research” for papers from any field relating to Native Peoples of North America.

3. A keynote and a session focuses on Native Americans who fought in WW II in and around Luxembourg (including site visits to memorials to Native American soldiers in the area of the Battle of the Bulge).

There will only be one session at a time, allowing for maximum participation and better feedback for all papers.
