The University and Community have shaped each other for some time now. This year the Indigenous Graduate Student Symposium (IGSS) invites submissions that explore transformation through Indigenous Research and Knowledge by thinking about how research interacts with community and how community shapes research. Please use this wordle to find inspiration for your abstract.

Please include with your proposal: the type of presentation, title, presenter(s) name(s), graduate program/university, and email. Please note that preference will be given to proposals that address the conference theme. However, proposals on Indigenous topics that do not address the theme will still be considered. We look forward to sharing multidisciplinary presentations and networking with student colleagues from near and far, in a comfortable, supportive community of scholars.

Your work-­‐in-­‐progress or finished projects may be shared in two ways:

  • Poster session. This format is open to your creativity. It provides an opportunity for you toshare your work with symposium participants during lunch.
  • Oral research presentation. This format supports a more formal opportunity to share your research or academic project in a 20-­‐minute presentation to a small audience. 

    We look forward to hearing from you!
