CFP Unsettling colonialisms
Settler Colonialism and Indigenous Resistance in Global Context
A special edition of the American Indian Culture and Research Journal
This special edition will bring together key writing on the histories, politics, and cultural discourses mobilized in the millennial global struggle between Natives and invaders. Unrestricted in time and space, the collection will address settler colonialism wherever it has occurred and however it has manifest.
Articles will interrogate settler categories, including the category of settler colonialism itself. The collection will provide space for Indigenous epistemologies to counter settler hegemonies, including established scholarly discourse on settler colonialism. It will critically engage with colonial discourses of conquest and Native alternatives alike. It will aspire to the kind of hard-nosed analytical rigor that can enhance the political options available to Indigenous groups.
We invite abstracts for articles between 5,000 words and 10,000 words in length. Articles will be pithy and focused. They will aim to make a difference.
Abstracts please by 30th June 2012 to: wolfepatrick101(a)gmail.com
