Intermarriage in American Indigenous History: Explorations in Power and Intimacy in North America
Call for Papers Date:
This special issue of Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies will consider the long and varied history and experiences of intermarriage between American Indians and non-Indians as a site of cultural contact and negotiation. The individual experiences of and community discussions about marriages across racial and ethnic lines often reveal the legal and economic regimes, cultural assumptions, gender and sexual identities, and community boundaries of those societies. Using these intimate relationships as our lens for social and political analysis, we will broadly consider how intermarriage has shaped the sovereignty of American Indian Nations, the course of European and American empires, the growth of societies, and the lives of individual men and women.
An inter- and multidisciplinary journal, Frontiers welcomes submissions of creative works such as artwork, fiction, and poetry, as well as scholarly papers.
Submissions are due January 2, 2007.
