New Visions in Native American and Indigenous Studies
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.
