Call for Proposals

Co-sponsored with the Indigenous Religious Traditions Unit

We invite papers for a session highlighting the restoration of land, land access, land relationships, and land stewardship to Indigenous communities. We encourage papers that explore not only the return of Indigenous treaty lands, but also lands that are unceded regardless of treaty status. Moreover, we encourage consideration of the spiritual implications of Land Back movements that occur globally and within urban and diasporic Indigenous populations. Scholars may also consider land back in terms of legal restitution, decolonial land philosophies, and the remaking of land traditions.
