CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS
THE ANNUAL GENEVA NATIVE STUDIES MASTERCLASS
Applications are invited from advanced research students (MA, PhD, and postdoc) and early career researchers in Native Studies to participate in a
hosted by the University of Geneva on FRIDAY 7 MAY, 2010.
The class will be conducted by
PROFESSOR AILEEN MORETON-ROBINSON
(Queensland University of Technology, Director of the Indigenous Studies Research Network)
Places in the masterclass are allocated competitively in order to ensure a satisfactory intellectual experience for all participants by restricting the size of the class.
The program consists of a morning session, in which Professor Moreton-Robinson will discuss her career and current work in indigenous epistemologies, followed by an afternoon session when each student will present a short description of his/her research project to Professor Moreton-Robinson and the group for individual discussion and advice. Materials will be distributed in advance to facilitate exchange.
The class is intended as a networking and mentoring opportunity; the primary value to each student is the chance to benefit from individual comments and advice by the "master scholar": Professor Moreton-Robinson.
All participants will receive a certificate attesting that they completed this masterclass.
There is no registration fee. However, each participant is responsible for his/her travel and accommodation expenses.
