Session CFP / AdeC (Deadline Extended) Universities Art Association of Canada/l=?iso-8859-1?Q?=92association_d=92art_des_universit=E9s?= du Canada

Dear Members of CASCA, the following conference and session call might be
of particular interest to visual anthropologists:

*Universities Art Association of Canada/l'association d'art des
du Canada*

*Call for Papers /Appel de communications pour le congrès de l'UAAC-AAUC à
Banff en 2013, Banff Centre, Banff, Alberta, October 17-20, 2013 *

*Deadline for Submissions EXTENDED TO June 11, 2013/ Date limite le 11
juin, 2013 See:*

*(Le français est inclus)*

A session we have proposed has been accepted, and the session call is as

*Art in the Time of Treaties*

With recognition that our conference will convene on Treaty Seven land, we
seek papers that explore the ways that treaties, understood to be enduring
and sacred relationships between Peoples, are set forth, solemnized,
commemorated, or commented on, in order to better understand the true
spirit and intent of these covenants, which are often mistakenly seen as
limited to the written word. For example, papers may examine artistic
representation or records of treaties in such material or creative
expressions as button blankets, wampum belts, Tlingit robes, graffiti,
street art, film, dance, song, Banff Indian Days, and canoe races. We
welcome submissions from artists and scholars that explore material
manifestations of treaties and consider the relationship between the Crown
or State and Indigenous Peoples in any geographic region or time period.

Session Co-chairs: Carolyn Butler Palmer, Williams Legacy Chair in the
Modern and Contemporary Arts of the Pacific Northwest, University of
Victoria, and Andie Palmer, Associate Professor and Associate Chair,
Anthropology, University of Alberta
