How do Indigenous/Native/Aboriginal feminisms navigate the contemporary political terrain in settler colonial contexts? How does attention to the concerns of Indigenous people change or reshape dominant progressive and/or liberal conceptual and activist concerns? For instance, can Indigenous understandings of land, the sacred, and kinship offer new insights and strategies for addressing xenophobia, climate change, and racism? Do they pose challenges and dilemmas? As is typical of our journal, we invite scholarly essays based on original research as well as review essays on clusters of new works, art essays, fiction, poetry, pedagogical reflections, and political commentary. We especially welcome content grounded in place, people, and time.
Deadline: September 15, 2017.
