Seeking two additional papers for a two panel series at ANZSANA 2019 (Austin, Texas, February 6-8) relating the history and culture of Australia and New Zealand to settler colonialism as a transnational phenomenon. We are particularly interested in papers that:


• Engage in comparative work that relates the history and culture of Australia and/or New Zealand to that of the US

• Consider how Australia as a case study has shaped contemporary transnational understandings of settler colonialism as a structure of power. 

• Consider the relationship between critiques of settler colonialism and critiques of the patriarchy, especially vis-a-vis contemporary Indigenous feminist approaches. 


The current participants include several senior scholars from NZ and Australia. Applications from grad students welcomed.  


Please email a CV, paper, proposed title, and brief description of your proposed talk as soon as possible, but before 10/20/18. A 250 word abstract will be required from the papers selected. Please feel free to contact Alex Trimble Young at with any questions.
