Women Ethnographers and Native Women Storytellers: Relational Science, Ethnographic Collaboration, and Tribal Community

Women Ethnographers and Native Women Storytellers: Relational Science, Ethnographic Collaboration, and Tribal Community by Susan Berry Brill de Ram?rezWomen Ethnographers and Native Women Storytellers focuses on the pioneering collaborative work between Native women storytellers and women ethnographers/editors. This book explores what it is that is constitutive of scientific rigor, factual accuracy, cultural authenticity, and storytelling signification. In this review of the intersubjectively relational methodologies of these women, we see that the most exemplary ethnographies are integrally grounded within and of value to the tribal communities of the Native women storytellers.

Native American Fiction: A User's Manual

Native American Fiction: A User's Manual by David Treuer

An entirely new approach to reading, understanding, and enjoying Native American fiction

This book has been written with the narrow conviction that if Native American literature is worth thinking about at all, it is worth thinking about as literature. The vast majority of thought that has been poured out onto Native American literature has puddled, for the most part, on how the texts are positioned in relation to history or culture.

Rather than create a comprehensive cultural and historical genealogy for Native American literature, David Treuer investigates a selection of the most important Native...

The Routledge Companion to Native American Literature

The Routledge Companion to Native American Literature by Deborah L. Madsen

The Routledge Companion to Native American Literature engages the multiple scenes of tension - historical, political, cultural, and aesthetic - that constitutes a problematic legacy in terms of community identity, ethnicity, gender and sexuality, language, and sovereignty in the study of Native American literature. This important and timely addition to the field provides context for issues that enter into Native American literary texts through allusions, references, and language use.

The volume presents over forty essays by leading and emerging international scholars and analyses:

  • regional, cultural,...

Performing Authorship in the Nineteenth-Century Transatlantic Lecture Tour: In Person

Performing Authorship in the Nineteenth-Century Transatlantic Lecture Tour: In Person by Amanda AdamsExpanding our understanding of what it meant to be a nineteenth-century author, Amanda Adams takes up the concept of performative, embodied authorship in relationship to the transatlantic lecture tour. Adams examines tours by British and American authors, including Frederick Douglass, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Harriet Martineau, Charles Dickens, and Oscar Wilde, arguing that these tours were a central aspect of nineteenth-century authorship at a time when authors were becoming celebrities and celebrities were international.

American Indian Literature and the Southwest: Contexts and Dispositions

American Indian Literature and the Southwest: Contexts and Dispositions by Eric Gary AndersonCulture-to-culture encounters between "natives" and "aliens" have gone on for centuries in the American Southwest-among American Indian tribes, between American Indians and Euro-Americans, and even, according to some, between humans and extraterrestrials at Roswell, New Mexico. Drawing on a wide range of cultural productions including novels, films, paintings, comic strips, and historical studies, this groundbreaking book explores the Southwest as both a real and a culturally constructed site of migration and encounter, in which the very identities of "alien" and "native" shift with each act...

Monkey Business Theatre

Monkey Business Theatre by Robert M. LaughlinIn 1983, a group of citizens in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, formed Sna Jtz'ibajom, the Tzotzil-Tzeltal Maya writers' cooperative. In the two decades since, this group has evolved from writing and publishing bilingual booklets to writing and performing plays that have earned them national and international renown.

Anthropologist Robert M. Laughlin has been a part of the group since its beginnings, and he offers a unique perspective on its development as a Mayan cultural force. The Monkey Business Theatre, or Teatro Lo'il Maxil, as this branch of Sna Jtz'ibajom calls itself, has presented...

Two Old Women: An Alaska Legend of Betrayal, Courage and Survival

Two Old Women: An Alaska Legend of Betrayal, Courage and Survival by Velma Wallis

Based on an Athabascan Indian legend passed along for many generations from mothers to daughters of the upper Yukon River Valley in Alaska, this is the suspenseful, shocking, ultimately inspirational tale of two old women abandoned by their tribe during a brutal winter famine.

Though these women have been known to complain more than contribute, they now must either survive on their own or die trying. In simple but vivid detail, Velma Wallis depicts a landscape and way of life that are at once merciless and starkly beautiful. In her old women, she has created two heroines of steely determination...

From Bomba to Hip-Hop: Puerto Rican Culture and Latino Identity

From Bomba to Hip-Hop: Puerto Rican Culture and Latino Identity by Juan FloresAs the populations of Latin American and Caribbean background in the United States proliferate, it becomes all the more important to understand the distinctions among nationalities and regional groups.

He reflects on varied areas of cultural expression by Puerto Ricans in the diaspora against the background of contemporary debates in Puerto Rico and recent developments in cultural theory. Close studies of urban space and performance, popular musical styles, and Nuyorican literature highlight the complexities...
