Last November, I had the honour of attending The Thirteenth Native American Symposium 2019 at Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Choctaw Nation, Durant, OK.
It was my first academic conference, so I wasn’t entirely sure how it was going to go, especially since this was also the first time I would be talking about my work with the white saviour trope outside of my department. Thankfully, everyone there was supportive on several levels, personally, academically, and professionally. I couldn’t have hoped for a better first experience.
Yesterday, I found out that my paper was selected for publication with the proceedings from the conference, another first that I am delighted to share with you all. I am attaching the paper here to be downloaded and read at your leisure. I do ask that if you choose to site from the article, please ensure to use proper citation (MLA, APA, Chicago style, etc.).
