The American Indian & Indigenous Studies Workshop (AIISW) provides a place for graduate students and faculty members from all disciplines to come together and share research related to indigenous studies. Each meeting consists of one or two presenters who share dissertation or book chapters, articles, syllabi, conference presentations, or other works, and receive feedback from the other participants in a supportive environment.

The workshop meets about eight times per semester and alternates between the east bank and west bank campuses each year. Email AIISW coordinators Hana Maruyama or John Little at for more information.
