CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT: Making policy from Traditional Perspectives
Posted by: "Alyssa Macy" alyss-@gmail.com
Thu Feb 14, 2008 8:43 pm (PST)

*Diné Policy Institute and Diné College present:*

*K'é bil nastii: Making policy from Traditional Perspectives.*

*Policy Analysis in Indian Country*

Tsaile, Navajo Nation (AZ)

June 19-20, 2008

Indian Country has yet to critically evaluate the policy-making and
policy
analysis processes it uses. These processes affect the implementation of
traditional norms and values in Tribal policy settings.

Policy analysis is often viewed as a benign process that does not impact
the
use of traditional principles. Yet, when examined carefully, policy
analysis
frames and problemitizes issues in a western frame. Analysts (e.g.
attorneys, staff assistants, program directors/managers, elected
officials,
and researchers, and so forth) in Indian Country then work within that
western frame, attempting to apply traditional values. This poses a
problem
as to validity of cultural appropriate policy outcomes. If the
traditional
value is framed in western notions, how then does the outcome promote
traditional values? Policy analysis and policy-making impacts how
traditional values and norms are used; autonomy over values and their
use is
given up to the dominant policy analysis and policy-making processes.

This conference will shed light on the following questions:

1. How do Indigenous people create a policy analysis process based on
Indigenous worldviews that sustains, supports and preserves traditional
values and norms in contemporary policy settings?

2. How do Indigenous people create a shared governance policy framework
that is also understood by non Indigenous society?

3. How do Indigenous people mitigate the negative impacts resulting
from the usage of dominant policy tools in Tribal policy settings?

*CALL FOR PAPERS AND PRESENTERS*

Topics include:

§ Theory of policy making and policy analysis process

§ Indigenous worldviews

§ Traditional decision-making processes

§ Community-Based Policy Research

§ Traditional knowledge and the philosophy of economics

§ Traditional values and the environment

§ Traditional Law and Policy

§ Traditional Tribal Knowledge, Self Governance and Philosophy

§ Ethics and Traditional Knowledge

§ Translation from Policy research to Practice

§ Infusing Traditional Knowledge into the Policy processes

Submit the title of the presentation ,a brief description (2-3
sentences) of
the topic; the name, tribal and/or university affiliation, degree
earned,
address, telephone number and email address; and, an abstract (250 word
limit) of the paper.

Proposals may be sent by email to Moroni Benally at
mtben-@dinecollege.edu by *May 10, 2008.*

For more information call Moroni Benally at (928) 724-6944

Call for Nominations: 2008 Ernest A. Lynton Award for the Scholarshi
Posted by: "Alyssa Macy" native-@yahoo.com   nativeshare
Thu Feb 14, 2008 8:43 pm (PST)



st1\:*{behavior:url(#default#ieooui) } The New England Resource Center
for Higher Education is now accepting nominations for the 2008 Ernest A.
Lynton Award for the Scholarship of Engagement, which recognizes a
faculty member who connects his or her teaching, research, and service
to community engagement.

Unlike traditional service-learning awards that focus on the link
between teaching and service, the Lynton Award emphasizes applied
scholarly activity more broadly. The scholarship of engagement (also
known as faculty professional service, outreach scholarship, public
scholarship, scholarship for the common good, and community-based
scholarship) represents an integrated view of scholarly activity in
which teaching, research, and service overlap and are mutually
reinforcing, is characterized by scholarly work tied to a faculty
member's expertise, is of benefit to the external community, is visible
and shared, and reflects the mission of the institution.

The recipient of the award will be selected according to the following
criteria:


Demonstrates a sustained effort in connecting teaching, research, and
service to community engagement;
Uses innovative approaches in making community engagement a
distinguishing, integral feature of teaching, research, and service;
Has internal institutional impact (through teaching, developing campus
projects and/or programs; involving faculty and students in new and
important ways);
Can demonstrate evidence of external success, both inside and outside
academia (through scholarly output, community impact and/or student
learning);
Demonstrates a commitment to working with community members through
reciprocal relationships;
Demonstrates a commitment to involving undergraduate students in
collaborative research.


For more information about the Ernest A. Lynton Award, including
nomination and submission guidelines, please visit the following link on
NERCHE’s website: http://www.nerche.org/Lynton_Award/call08/call08.html

Please note that all nominations must be received by April 25, 2008. The
recipient will be notified in late June 2008.

If you have any questions regarding the Ernest A. Lynton Award, please
contact NERCHE at (617) 287-7740 or via email at ner-@umb.edu.
