This collection of essays to be published by the University of Utah Press will explore the full range of Sherman Alexie's work, including poetry, short fiction, novels, nonfiction prose, and screenplays and films.
Submissions will receive close attention if they foreground or privilege an indigenous perspective or acknowledge Alexie's intersections with pan-Indian literary traditions. We are particularly interested in articles that highlight the significance of Spokane or Coeur d'Alene culture and history and that frame Alexie's work within the context of tribal worldviews. We are also seeking analyses that examine the interplay of genre in Alexie's works. A portion of royalties for this project will be contributed to the American Indian College Fund.
