Native American and Indigenous Studies Association

The premiere international & interdisciplinary professional organization for scholars, graduate students, independent researchers, and community members interested in all aspects of Indigenous Studies.


The broad use of Vizenor-created theoretical terms in many different academic fields (e.g. law, literature, anthropology, sociology, museum studies, etc.) highlights the fact that Vizenor Studies represents a significant interdisciplinary conversation within the broader field of Indigenous Studies. As such, the editors of Transmotion will look for submissions of critical essays that do any of the following:

Look at Vizenor’s work directly, as well as the work of related authors and theorists in the field
Employ Vizenor’s theory to look at other writers
Continue Vizenor’s project of bringing together traditional indigenous knowledges and Asian or European continental philosophy
Explore the inter-relation of image and text, art and literature, in Vizenor’s work
Contribute to recent developing conversations in contemporary Native American art and literature, in relation to questions of visual sovereignty, visuality, and ethics.
Offer innovative, surprising, unexpected and creative critique of American Indian literatures or other creative arts
Emphasize experimental, theoretical, and avant-garde Native North American work

The journal will also accept creative or hybrid work, provided that such work aligns aesthetically with the aforementioned editorial emphasis. The editors particularly welcome submissions of innovative and creative works that exploit digital media.
