Call for Papers: 19th & 20th Indigenous Visual and Material Culture, Arts journal Papers are currently being accepted for a Special Issue of Arts titled “Native Survivance and Visual Sovereignty: Indigenous Visual and Material Culture in the 19th & 20th Centuries.” The deadline for submissions is July 12, 2019. Questions can be directed to the Special Issue’s guest editors, Sascha T. Scott (Syracuse University, sscott04@syr.edu) and Amy Lonetree (University of California, Santa Cruz, lonetree@ucsc.edu).   Recent discussions of contemporary Indigenous art highlight messages of survivance, resilience, and visual sovereignty, among other innovative approaches. These concepts and strategies find their roots in the visual and material culture produced by Indigenous artists working in the 19th and 20th centuries.   Contributors to this Special Issue will highlight how Indigenous peoples have mobilized images and objects in order to transform, accommodate, revise, and resist dominant structures, asserting their right to self-representation, self-determination, and/or self-governance in the face of aggressive colonialism. Papers also examine museological issues surrounding the collection and exhibition of Indigenous objects. All papers will be double-blind reviewed.   Planned papers include submissions by Philip Deloria, David Penney, Heather Igloliorte, Cynthia Chavez Lamar, Amy Lonetree, Patricia Marroquin-Norby, Alexandra Kahsenni:io Nahwegahbow, Anya Montiel, Dylan Robinson, Emily Moore, Julie Nagam, Jen Shannon, Sascha Scott, and Scott Manning Stevens.   For more information consult https://www.mdpi.com/journal/arts/special_issues/indigenous_visual_material_culture
