Perseverance builds character.

How does perseverance come about? By rising through a struggle, whether it is a provoked or unprovoked event that questions one’s ability to endure and survive a hardship. It is through one’s suffering and survival of such hardships in life -whether physical or mental - that one is able to build upon their character, thus leading to hope.

We are able to see these modes of struggle and perseverance in various facets from ethnicity, gender, and politics, to name a few, and we would like to hear, learn, and share them in our publication.

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

Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - 3:40pm

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.

“If we had a keen vision of all that is ordinary in human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow or the squirrel’s heart beat, and we should die of that roar which is the other side of silence.” —George Eliot

“And time yet for a hundred indecisions/And for a hundred visions and revisions/Before the taking of a toast and tea.” —T. S. Eliot
