  • 2014 Annual Meeting of the American Society for Ethnohistory

    The 2014 Annual Meeting of the American Society for Ethnohistory will be held October 8 – 12 at Crowne Plaza Union Station in Indianapolis, Indiana.

    Members of USI faculty are involved in the conference planning and there are a large number of Ethnohistorians who will be in attendance including a roundtable discussion of the 10th anniversary of Phil Deloria’s Indians in Unexpected Places as well as many panels reflecting on the anniversary of the American Society for Ethnohistory.

    The year 2014 marks an important date for the American Society for Ethnohistory as it represents the 60th anniversary of the first publication of the Society’s journal, Ethnohistory. Birthed from the Indian Claims Commissions of the 1940s and 1950s, the Society came together in 1954 to “promote the interdisciplinary investigation of the histories of the Native Peoples of the Americas,” and has grown from a small group of scholars to a thriving academic organization.

    The conference theme this year poses the questions: How has the study of Ethnohistory changed over the previous six decades? What are the most vital issues Ethnohistorians face in the 21st century? And what lies ahead for ASE?

    The 2014 annual meeting of the American Society for Ethnohistory represents an opportunity to reflect on the organization’s history, to examine how Ethnohistory has come to shape a multitude of disciplines including anthropology, linguistic studies, history, ecology, archaeology, and indigenous studies to name a few, to acknowledge exciting new directions in the field, and to think about the future.

    USI faculty and staff are welcome to attend the conference at a reduced rate of $50 and students may attend for free. Interested parties should contact Dr. Kristalyn Shefveland at or 812-461-5434, to register for the conference.
