Oceania is a region rich with vantage points for navigating local community struggles and global matters. Recognizing that histories of exchange within and beyond Oceania shape the lived experiences of Pacific Islanders, Indigenous Pacifics seeks to create a space for generative and sustained conversations between the independent and the still-occupied Pacific Islands, between Natives and non-Natives, between academics, artists, activists and other cultural knowledge producers, between the Pacific and other regions. In so doing, this series provokes audiences to think anew and differently about issues of decolonization, sovereignty, nationhood, language revitalization, militarization, development, resource management, diaspora, and varied forms of Indigenous cultural and political resurgence.
Indigenous Pacifics values the situated specificities of Indigenous Pacific contexts and concerns, while also attending to broader dynamics of power, knowledge and movement. The series presents projects that consider cultural politics and the politics of culture, where “politics” is understood to encompass the everyday, the intimate, the economic and the popular, as well as formal institutions of governance and policy. Whereas Pacific and Native studies have historically focused on relationships between colonizers and colonized, this series also encourages nuanced engagement with inter-Pacific relationships of collaboration and contestation. The editors invite projects that productively place historical and contemporary Pacific experiences of cultural production and political mobilization into conversation.
Indigenous Pacifics aims to open new pathways in thought and practice for Oceanic epistemologies, methodologies and relationships, particularly through books that emerge from and take seriously the concerns of Indigenous and diasporic islander communities. This interdisciplinary series will draw from fields such as: history, anthropology, cultural studies, political science, literature, environmental studies, sociology, gender studies, performance studies, Pacific Studies, and Native studies (such as Hawaiian, Māori, and Chamorro studies). The editors encourage projects that push the boundaries of and explore the productive tensions between such disciplines.
