Call for Papers:

This special issue of Frontiers will consider the long and varied
history and experiences of intermarriage between American Indians and
non-Indians as a site of cultural contact and negotiation. The
individual experiences of and community discussions about marriages
across racial and ethnic lines often reveal the legal and economic
regimes, cultural assumptions, gender and sexual identities, and
community boundaries of those societies. Using these intimate
relationships as our lens for social and political analysis, we will
broadly consider how intermarriage has shaped the sovereignty of
American Indian Nations, the course of European and American empires,
the growth of societies, and the lives of individual men and women.


An inter- and multidisciplinary journal, Frontiers welcomes submissions
of creative works such as artwork, fiction, and poetry, as well as
scholarly papers. Works must be original, and not published or under
consideration for publication elsewhere. We encourage those interested
in contributing to the special issue to email the guest editors.


Submissions should be sent to Frontiers as email attachments,=20 or, along with three hard copies,
addressed to Editors, Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies, Department
of History, Arizona State University, P. O. Box 874302, Tempe, AZ
85287-4302. Author names should not appear on the manuscript; list
contact information separately.
