CFP:Special Issue: New Approaches to American Indian Autobiography
The American Indian Culture and Research Journal invites papers from scholars of all disciplinary backgrounds for a special issue on the topic of American Indian autobiography. This issue seeks to expand studies of American Indian autobiography or self-life-narration in light of recent developments in literary, visual and cultural studies. Submissions of autobiographical film and visual culture narratives are especially encouraged.
Possible subjects for consideration include, but are not limited to: memoirs; conversion narratives; spiritual narratives; boarding school experiences; autoethnography; self-vindication narratives; autobiographical film and visual culture; and collaborative autobiography, as well as the intersections of personal narrative and material culture, class, anthropology, legal discourse, gender and sexuality.
Deadline: Please submit 15-20 page manuscripts to both Guest Editors by August 15, 2004. The AICRJ follows The Chicago Manual of Style, 14th edition.
