Native Studies Masterclass in Geneva

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

ONE-DAY MASTERCLASS

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.

        - a short curriculum vitae
        - a brief outline of your research project
