American Political Science Association (APSA) Annual Meeting 2019 Short Course

Indigenous Political Science: Opportunities for Innovation and Inclusion (SC06)

Co-hosted by the Native Nations Institute

Wednesday, August 28, 2019. 1:30-5:30 PM. Marriott Wardman Park, Maryland A Room

In the wake of the #noDAPL movement and of the 2018 U.S. election, in which Native politics played a prominent role, Indigenous people, Native nations, and tribal governments should be more visible than ever in political science. Yet many political science scholars feel unprepared to take on research that addresses or includes Indigenous political issues and Indigenous policy—and scholars that do take on these issues can feel sidelined by the discipline. This short course is offered as an antidote.

Designed for anyone (from the U.S. or around the world) interested in conducting research that includes Indigenous peoples and their political concerns, as well as for those already engaged in such research, this course creates an opportunity to learn from practitioners about their research needs and from established scholars about research and publication possibilities. It places Indigenous politics squarely within the discipline of political science with the goal of encouraging more scholars, departments, and journals to embrace and include tribal, Native, and Indigenous topics and research.
