This edited volume will be organized around key concepts that emerge from studies of indigenous peoples in the Americas and arranged into four intersecting themes: indigenism/xicanismo, mestizaje/hybridity, migration/displacement, and autonomy/sovereignty. In spite of being ubiquitous, these concepts and themes are not understood or deployed in the same way across ethnic groups, disciplines or national boundaries. We seek essays that foster a shared understanding of these analytical concepts and the decolonial methodologies used to unpack them, and that will promote their adoption outside of their disciplinary home. This exchange will provide scholars with new tools and alternative frameworks by which to analyze native communities and structure an international comparative framework for indigenous studies. The edited volume will be of interest to students in Ethnic Studies, American Studies, American Indian Studies, Chicano Studies, Gender and Women’s Studies, Queer Studies, Latina/o Studies, Latin American Studies, Post-Colonial Studies, Anthropology, History, and Cultural Studies.
By July 31, 2009, please submit a 2-3 page proposal and 2 page CV single space, ms word, times new roman to the editors: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
We will select the contributing essays by September 1, 2009, at which point we will begin working with a university press to publish the volume. Complete essay drafts are due December 15, 2009.
