Critical Ethnic Studies provides a space for unique and insurgent critique within ethnic studies. It explores the guiding question of The Critical Ethnic Studies Association, which is: how do the histories of colonialism and conquest, racial chattel slavery, and white supremacist patriarchies and heteronormativities affect, inspire, and unsettle scholarship and activism in the present?
We are seeking papers for a collection of academic essays at the intersection of critical race theory and ecological criticism. Ideally, papers will engage the semiotics of race and nature, identity and place, culture and economy, and/or history and the future. To reframe Donna Haraway’s foundational critical questions in /Primate Visions/, we ask how do “the marks of race and [difference]” enable or disrupt ecocritical and cultural knowledges and possibilities in a “post racial,” late industrial society? How can we theorize and productively respond to the impact of racial formations on the environment, historically, and in the age of the Anthropocene? Our collection will draw on the long-standing critical and environmental activist work in Native American studies and on traditions of ecofeminist scholarship. Deadline to submit is January 12, 2015.
