Submit Your Abstract Online
Deadline: June 1st, 2015

Paper: (15 minutes – formal)

Perhaps the most formal category at the conference and an excellent way to share research results, thoughts and ideas. An increasing number of papers in this category are accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation.

Research update: (5-10 minutes – informal)

Ideal for the grad student or seasoned researcher seeking sources, assistance, guidance and opinions on current research. Can’t identify an artifact found during your latest excavation? Can’t identify an individual in a photo you found during your search at the archives? This is your chance to ask the audience.

Film:

The current schedule can accommodate 2 films.

Poster Session: (2 hours – formal)

Ideal for students. A great way to participate at a conference without the pressures of presenting before an audience. This session is a more intimate encounter with other researchers, lending itself to an excellent way to gather more data and advice.

Welcome to the Wood’s Edge

Since 1945, The Conference on Iroquois Research has provided a unique collaborative forum for anthropologists, archaeologists, sociologists, artists, ethnohistorians, historians, linguists, and Native scholars and Elders whose research focuses on the Haudenosaunee. This academic retreat fosters a holistic approach where native and non-native researchers from all disciplines share the same podium with only one session in progress. Although the venues have changed over the last half century, from its informal encounters at the Allegany State Park administrative building in Red House, the focus, the spirit and the integrity of the conference continues to burn brightly.
