Call for Contributors: "The Only Way Open to Us:" Warfare and Resistance in North American Indian History, 1500-1900
Call for Papers Date:
The co-editors of "The Only Way Open to Us:" Warfare and Resistance in North American Indian History, 1500-1900, an anthology of 12-15 original essays to be published in 2004, are currently accepting proposals for potential inclusion in this collection. The volume will explore the diverse forms of warfare and resistance employed by the Indian peoples of North America, taking into special account the attendant effects of conflict upon native social, political, economic, and spiritual development. Submissions dealing with any geographic or temporal topic within the framework of North America circa 1500-1900 are welcome, although essays exploring warfare and conflict among the Indian societies of the Eastern Woodlands, Great Plains, American Southwest, and Pacific Coast are particularly encouraged.
This is an ideal publishing opportunity for junior faculty and advanced doctoral students, as the editors hope to bring new and innovative approaches to the study of North American Indian warfare. The volume is intended to blend fresh perspectives with established authorities to provide a well-rounded, engaging forum of research. To that end, multi-disciplinary approaches will be afforded special attention, although more traditional forms of historical inquiry are equally encouraged. Interested parties should submit a detailed abstract (2-3 pp) and a current curriculum vita to Dr. Stephen Carney at the address below no later than 31 July 2002. Electronic submissions are strongly preferred, either in Microsoft Word or WordPerfect format.
Inquiries for further information may be directed to either of the volume's co-editors, Dr. Stephen Carney or Dr. Daniel Barr, at the addresses listed below.
