Advanced graduate students enrolled in degree-granting institutions in the United States and abroad are invited to submit papers that examine Indigenous visual communication systems transhistorically and from a range of perspectives, including studies of later artists who emulate these forms of communication in their work.

The full call for papers, along with additional information can be found at
