Call for Book Chapters: "Quest/ion of Margins: Survival Narrative in Indigenous Film and Literature"
Vernon Press invites book chapter proposals for a forthcoming interdisciplinary edited volume on the subject of “Indigenous film and Literature.”
The quest/ion of margins urges the inclusion of indigenous film and literature in the canon of mainstream literature and reconsiders the marginal place of indigenous people, their culture, and aesthetic tradition to dominant canons of dominant thought and culture. The image of indigenous people in mainstream cultural society has been largely a product of misrepresentation, social, and political vehemence in which they remained marginalized to their land and reservation by finding themselves on the margins of tribal identity and removed from the centre of power within their culture. North American Native authors argue that margins as separate canons in showing their hatred towards white missionaries and the federal government.
Chapters may be approached interdisciplinary from the Humanities and Social Sciences, with possible subdisciplines including (but not limited to):
- Native American Literature and Film
- First Nations Literature and Film
- Australian Aboriginal film and Literature
- Māori Literature and Film
- South Asian Indigenous Literature and film
