Routledge Research in Transnational Indigenous Perspectives features scholarly work exploring both indigenous perspectives that are explicitly transnational and transnational perspectives on indigenous topics. As such, it is committed to fostering and presenting high-quality research in the area of Indigenous Studies, addressing historical and contemporary political, social, economic, and cultural issues concerning the indigenous peoples of North and South America, Europe, Australasia, and the larger Pacific region. The series is thus not limited to one particular methodological approach, but looks at the highly dynamic and growing field of Indigenous Studies that is of central interest for a range of different disciplines.
Members of the series' advisory board include Chadwick Allen (University of Washington); Philip J. Deloria (University of Michigan); Christian Feest (em., Johann-Wolfgang Goethe University Frankfurt); Hsinya Huang (National Sun Yat-Sen University).
The series considers contributions from a wide range of areas in the field of Indigenous Studies. These include but are not limited to:
