"Critical Issues in Indigenous Studies" Book Series with the U of A Press

Critical Issues in Indigenous Studies
Series Editors Jeffrey P. Shepherd and Myla Vicenti Carpio

Drawing upon the contributions of myriad theoretical and contextual perspectives in the field of Native/Indigenous Studies, this series seeks to transcend disciplinary boundaries by anchoring intellectual work within an Indigenous framework that reflects Native-centered concerns and objectives. The series encourages a critical assessment of the “locations of engagement,” where the lived experiences of Indigenous peoples intersect with scholarly and Indigenous intellectual production.

The “Critical Issues in Indigenous Studies” series will publish monographs across global spaces, to expand and deepen discussions about Indigenous people beyond nation-state boundaries, while complicating existing notions of Indigenous identity. Titles ideally will analyze locally based problems and solutions in ways that can be applied to similar global processes elsewhere. We welcome new and established authors whose work prioritizes the voices and knowledge of Indigenous peoples, and critically engages the lives, stories, and experiences of Indigenous peoples globally. We are especially interested in titles that analyze colonization, land dispossession, and racial-gender-sexual-class oppression, and that foreground Indigenous peoples’ resistance to these processes. We hope that the volumes will help readers to reconsider issues of sovereignty, nation-hood, and people hood; assess global indigenous rights movements; and explore Indigenous theory and intellectual traditions.

The editors will consider not only monographs but edited collections and synthetic works. They ultimately seek to promote books that will appeal to a wide array of intellectual and non-academic audiences that will, in turn, be utilized by undergraduate and graduate classrooms as well as community-based and human/indigenous rights organizations.
