Papers of the Forty-Second Algonquian Conference: Actes du Congrès des Algonquinistes

Papers of the forty-second Algonquian Conference held at Memorial University of Newfoundland in October 2010.

The papers of
the Algonquian Conference have long served as the primary source of
peer-reviewed scholarship addressing topics related to the languages and
societies of Algonquian peoples. Contributions, which are peer-reviewed
submissions presented at the annual conference, represent an assortment of
humanities and social science disciplines, including archeology, cultural
anthropology, history, ethnohistory, linguistics, literary studies, Native
studies, social work, film, and countless others. Both theoretical and
descriptive approaches are welcomed, and submissions often provide previously
unpublished data from historical and contemporary sources, or novel theoretical
insights based on firsthand research. The research is commonly interdisciplinary
in scope and the papers are filled with contributions presenting fresh research
from a broad array of researchers and writers. These papers are essential
reading for those interested in Algonquian world views, cultures, history, and
languages. They build bridges among a large international group of people who
write in different disciplines. Scholars in linguistics, anthropology, history,
education, and other fields are brought together in one vital community, thanks
to these publications.
