2016 CALL FOR PROPOSALS
**Extended** DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: January 4, 2015
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.
Indigenous graduate students or graduate students whose research relates to Indigenous scholarship in any discipline or across disciplines are invited to submit an individual or group proposal limited to 150 words to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 4, 2016. 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! Please let us know if you have any questions: email@example.com Hosted by the IGSS Planning Committee & SAGE (Supporting Aboriginal Graduate Enhancement) The University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University and SAGE Partnership
