CfP Visual Representations of Native Americans: Transnational Contexts and
Perspectives: We are seeking articles for a forthcoming book on the
transnational dimensions of the production and reception of visual
representations of Native Americans from the colonial times to the 21st
century. The Indian as image, stereotype, icon, and metaphor was fabricated
in a transnational context and needs to be read within the respective
cultural, historical, and political contexts. The perspective can include
the cultural function and usage of both American visuals in Europe and
visuals produced in Europe for European and/or American audiences. For more
information, e-mail the editors. Please send a short 250-word abstract and
a brief CV by Feb. 1, 2008 to Prof. Dr. Karsten Fitz
(karsten.fitz_at_uni-passau.de) and Katharina Erhard
(kerhard_at_mail.uni-mannheim.de)
