Regna Darnell and Stephen O. Murray, series editors
This series consists of critical studies of key aspects of the history of anthropology. The series aims for a balance between the reflexivity of contemporary theory and the historicism which has long been the keynote of the history of anthropology.
Margaret Jacobs and Robert J. Miller, series editors
The University of Nebraska Press and the American Philosophical Society’s New Visions in Native American and Indigenous Studies proposes to publish first-rate research in Native American History and Native American Legal and Policy Studies, with an emphasis on the subject area in the disciplines of History, Anthropology, Law, Legal History, Religious Studies, Social Work, Health, and Public Policy.
The UNP-APS series offers opportunities for UNP to build on its already strong reputation in the field of Native American and Indigenous Studies by attracting the best new scholarship in the field and partnering with American Philosophical Society, the largest archive of Native American and Indigenous materials in North America and one of the Top 3 learned societies in the world. The series will cement the working relationship of UNP and APS, as well as draw on the resources of APS as a major, grant-funding institution in Native American and Indigenous Studies through its Phillips Fund Research Grants.
The partners envision the series as open to any high-quality scholarship in the field, but manuscripts will be solicited in broad thematic areas related to editors’ research interests and expertise: Domesticity, Intimacy, and the Family; Decolonization, Reparation, Redress, and other legal issues; and Comparative and Transnational Indigenous Studies. These areas represent some of the most important new directions in the field of American Indian and Indigenous Studies in the last decade.

A venue for the scholarly study of borderlands—of the encounters, intersections, and collisions between peoples and cultures—the books in this series focus on comparative borderlands, multiple identities (borderlands of race, culture, and identity), race in the American West, human migrations, and colonial encounters.

JOURNALS FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA PRESS
American Indian Quarterly
American Indian Quarterly has earned its reputation as one of the dominant journals in American Indian studies by presenting the best and most thought-provoking scholarship in the field. AIQ is a forum for diverse voices and perspectives spanning a variety of academic disciplines. The common thread is AIQ’s commitment to publishing work that contributes to the development of American Indian studies as a field and to the sovereignty and continuance of American Indian nations and cultures. In addition to peer-reviewed articles, AIQfeatures reviews of books, films, and exhibits.
Anthropological Linguistics provides a forum for the full range of scholarly study of the languages and cultures of the peoples of the world, especially the native peoples of the Americas. Embracing the field of language and culture broadly defined, the journal includes articles and research reports addressing cultural, historical, and philological aspects of linguistic study, including analyses of texts and discourse; studies of semantic systems and cultural classifications; onomastic studies; ethnohistorical papers that draw significantly on linguistic data; studies of linguistic prehistory and genetic classification, both methodological and substantive; discussions and interpretations of archival material; edited historical documents; and contributions to the history of the field.
Collaborative Anthropologies is a forum for dialogue with a special focus on the complex collaborations between and among researchers and research participants/interlocutors. It features essays that are descriptive as well as analytical, from all subfields of anthropology and closely related disciplines, and that present a diversity of perspectives on collaborative research.
Great Plains Quarterly publishes articles for scholars and interested laypeople on history, literature, culture, and social issues relevant to the Great Plains, which include Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Wyoming, and the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan.
The journal, which is published for the Center for Great Plains Studies, is edited by a faculty member from the University of Nebraska and includes a distinguished international board of advisory editors.
Middle West Review, special issue 7.2
From Guest Editor Brie Swenson Arnold: “In recognition of the centennial of the Great Migration, this special issue of Middle West Review highlights the prevalence and significance of African American migration to smaller midwestern cities during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In focusing on the cities of Beloit, Wisconsin; Parsons, Kansas; Burlington, Iowa; and Saginaw, Michigan, the four central essays in this volume recover experiences of migration and community-building in lesser-known midwestern cities and examine the contours of racial discrimination in the region as a whole. Through these community studies, we explore why Black men and women relocated to the Midwest and how they moved within predominantly White communities while simultaneously building up Black ‘communities within communities’ across the region.”
Native South challenges scholars of southern history to expand their conception of the field to include more than the black and white post-colonial south that colors much of the historical literature of the region. The journal focuses on the investigation of Southeastern Indian history with the goals of encouraging further study and exposing the influences of Indian people on the wider South. It does not limit itself to the study of the geographic area that was once encompassed by the Confederacy, but expands its view to the areas occupied by the pre-contact- and the post-contact descendants of the original inhabitants of the South, wherever they may be.
