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

updated: 
Tuesday, December 18, 2018 - 5:00pm

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

Many novelists in various national literatures touched upon the theme of an emancipated woman in the long nineteenth century. Imagination, as it is believed, has no borders and is dialogical in its nature.  Different voices of great emancipationist writers merged into one influential symphony liberating and awakening consciousness of slaves—males and females. If writers did not support directly or sympathized with the image of an emancipated woman, they did reflect on her place in society and her belonging. World literature allows us to take a closer look at the imagined and real women's lives, at their biographies and reminiscent writing.
