Submitted by Eric W. Fraunholz on Wed, 05/28/2014 - 16:52

ASL assistant lecturer and PhD student Anne Grob recently presented her work at the American Indian Workshop in Leiden, the Netherlands.

The conference that took place from May 21 to May 25, 2014, is among the most important meetings in Native American and First Nations Studies in Europe and attracts researchers from various European universities as well as an increasing number of speakers from the US and Canada. This year, conference participants were able to listen to renowned indigenous scholars such as Dr. Henrietta Mann, Dr. Donald Fixico, and Dr. Gerald McMaster among others.

Embracing the overall conference theme "Communication is Key," Grob presented a paper on communication, research, and research collaborations between indigenous groups and academia, and highlighted the increasing importance of improving communication strategies between both groups by providing examples from her own research in tribal communities in the US and New Zealand.
