Springer Book series

The collaboration is currently putting together a book series under the title Indigenous-Settler Relations in Australia and the World. This series, which is to be published by Stringer Books, aims to bring together scholars interested in examining contemporary Indigenous affairs through questions of relationality. This is a unique approach that represents a deliberate move away from both settler-colonial studies (which examines historical and present impacts of settler states upon Indigenous peoples), and from postcolonial and decolonial scholarship (which is predominantly interested in how Indigenous peoples speak back to the settler state). Closely connected to, but with meaningful contrast to these approaches, the Indigenous-Settler Relations series will focus sharply upon questions about what informs, shapes and gives social, legal and political life to relations between Indigenous peoples and non-Indigenous peoples, both in Australia and globally.

The book series does not currently have a release date so please subscribe to our mail out list to stay informed.

Please note: The collaboration is on the look out for contributors to this series so if you have any questions or proposals please get in touch via our contact web page.
