CFP: Edited Collection on Settler Colonialism

CALL FOR PAPERS
Edited collection on settler colonialism

Yu-ting Huang, UCLA
Rebecca Weaver-Hightower, University of North Dakota

We seek submissions for a collection of new examinations of settler colonialism as expressed and developed through literature or other “texts” (including films, historical documents, art, architecture, music, maps, and advertisements, among other types of texts). We are particularly interested in submissions that approach these texts as articulations of transnational connections developed by ways of settler migration and/or colonial displacement.

This collection seeks to further analysis of settler colonial studies, which has in recent years been a burgeoning field that has grown to involve more than the European colonialism of the 15th-20th centuries typically covered by postcolonial studies. Though a more narrowed focus for the collection might emerge based on the submissions received, we hope for a comparative volume including a range of national traditions, geographic locations, and topical foci. We would also welcome essays that in their analysis combine different theoretical approaches with postcolonial studies.

Please send abstracts of 350-500 words with brief CV/explanation of work relevant to the topic to Rebecca Weaver-Hightower via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or snail mail or fax to the address below by August 31, 2015. We will contact authors by September 30 for more information or to express regrets. We would like completed essays by April 30 2016.
