Call For Papers

We invite scholars to join us at the international conference Contemporary Indigenous Realities to be held at the Faculty of Philosophy, Niksic, University of Montenegro, on June 25-27, 2015.

Realities, being “attributes and circumstances that shape one’s perspective,” invite contributions from a variety of disciplines including cultural and ethnic studies, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, history, arts, literature, linguistics, and education. By “contemporary” we mean exclusively turn-of the twenty-first century phenomena related to indigenous peoples. We hope that scholars working within this broad range of fields should be able to easily tailor their current research around this topic.

We are interested in creating a vivid mosaic of contributions that would also involve performances, story-telling events, screenings, exhibitions, and poster sessions. We anticipate participation of several renowned scholars and filmmakers from Canada and the USA and are working towards an event at which scholars and artists would meet and temporarily work together towards new ideas.

Dr. Timothy Petete, from the University of Central Oklahoma, Edmond, OK, USA, will open the conference addressing Generation X and Indigenous Literature.

Abstracts containing up to 250 words (in Word format), up to 10 keywords, and a bio sketch, should be sent by March 1, 2015 to either Dr. Marija Krivokapic at or Dr. Sanja Runtic at

The conference fee is 70,00 euros for teachers and 50,00 euros for students. It includes conference material with the book of abstracts, conference dinner, conference excursion, refreshments, a CD of performances, and the book of proceedings.

The conference fee is to be paid by May 1, 2015. The bank account details will be sent to the authors after the registration deadline.
