EAU CLAIRE — The Anishinaabeg of the Great Lakes Region Symposium on History, Culture and Contemporary Issues will be held Sept. 28-Oct. 1 on the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire campus in Davies Center.
The goals of the symposium are to provide a venue by which information compiled by tribal and non-tribal scholars on the Anishinaabeg can be exchanged; to examine the status of the nation of the Anishinaabeg, its cultural traditions, language preservation and intellectual properties; to create a network to support future scholarship, mentor relationships and collaboration between disciplines, programs and institutions; and to publish the symposium proceedings.
The event is open to the general public. Organizers hope to draw educators, artists and historians.
The UW-Eau Claire College of Arts and Sciences Continuing Education/UW-Extension and the American Indian Studies programs of UW-Eau Claire and UW-Green Bay will sponsor the event.
The fee — which covers instruction, materials, refreshments, lunches and the Wednesday evening feast — is $125 for professionals and $65 for full-time students. Anyone who wishes to attend only one day of the symposium may pay a $70 fee.
Continuing education units, as well as undergraduate and graduate credit will be available for attending the symposium.
Pre-registration is preferred, although tickets will be available at the door. Payments should be sent or faxed to the College of Arts and Sciences Continuing Education/UW-Extension. For further information about the program or attaining credit, contact La Vone Sneen at (715) 836-2031.
