American Genocide: Indians & Other Animals (essays & poetry; edited volume)

Critical scholarship on the indigenous humans of North America and scholarship in Critical Animal Studies often remain separate and rarely appear in dialogue with one another. And yet, both fields of study can benefit greatly from being placed in conversation. There has not been a volume to date that adequately grapples with the similar exploitation and extinction of these two marginalized “Others.” The crucial intersection of the human indigenous and other non-human species entails both trope and reality, as both a longtime ideological comedy of errors and misprisions—and a longtime material tragedy of genocide and extinction.

Though usually relegated to second status critically, the short story is having a moment. When Canadian writer Alice Munro won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2013, it was specifically for her contribution to the short story genre. As a writer who does not write novels, she acknowledged the importance of the award: “It’s a wonderful thing for the short story.” Indeed.

Children and Childhood through a Genealogical Lense

Monday, September 24, 2018 - 4:20pm
Journal: Genealogies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 15, 2019

Dear Colleagues,

Dr. Sarah Richards

Guest Editor

The intersection of childhood with multiple social and political institutions can provide insight into how childhood and children have historically been positioned and how such genealogical positioning continues to inform childhood and the lives of children today. We seek papers that highlight changed and changing ideas about children and childhood not only within formal and informal institutions where childhood is situated such as school and the family, but also in relation to certain themes such as technology, sexuality, migration and war.
