The Indigenous Eighteenth Century
The editor of this special issue of ECF invites manuscripts that consider the roles and representations of Indigenous peoples from the Americas, Australia, and New Zealand during the long eighteenth century. In what ways did Indigenous peoples shape European literature and knowledge? How can we recover sites of agency and response, and how do we read alternative strategies of representation outside of the written word? How were European writers who encountered “Indians” and “savages” influenced by these exchanges? How was Indigenous material culture collected and understood by Europeans? This special issue seeks to bring the interdisciplinary approaches of Indigenous Studies to bear on the eighteenth century, and to continue the work of decolonizing the period as we know it. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to submit a manuscript for consideration. Publication of this special issue is proposed for autumn 2020.
The special issue editor is Dr. Robbie Richardson, University of Kent.
