Papers are sought for one or more edited collections of work in the area of Indigenous Geographies. The proposed collections(s) reflect not only the growing (if still faint) voice of indigenous peoples in today's globalized world, but also the increasing profile of Indigenous Geographies within the discipline of Geography. It has long been recognized among a subgroup of geographers that geographic inquiry is extraordinarily well suited to the study of indigenous peoples because of the range of land/place/space-based issues involved in the lives of indigenous peoples, past and present. In today's Geography, as we become increasingly aware of the legacies of colonialism and the ongoing power relationships embedded in neocolonialism, geographic inquiry has perhaps even more to offer.
With this in mind, we encourage submissions from all fields that may have relevance to Indigenous Geographies, with the aim of developing a critical overview of the current issues and debates.
Essays should be 12-25 pages in length, and should follow the contributor guidelines specified at the end of this CFP. The collection(s) will be edited jointly by Wendy Shaw (University of New South Wales), Doug Herman (Towson University), and Rebecca Dobbs (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill).
Contributions will be considered on a rolling basis until such time that we feel we have sufficient materials to proceed.
Contributor guidelines: Contributors are asked to follow the guidelines for Geografiska Annaler B, Blackwell Publishing. These guidelines are found at our website.
For more information or to submit materials, contact either Rebecca Dobbs, Wendy Shaw, or Doug Herman via email.
