The Global Ascendency of Social Media Activism
Indigenous Peoples Rise Up: The Global Ascendency of Social Media Activism illustrates the impact of social media in expanding the nature of Indigenous communities and social movements. Social media has bridged distance, time, and nation states to mobilize Indigenous peoples to build coalitions across the globe and to stand in solidarity with one another. Including examples like Idle No More in Canada, Australian Recognise!, and social media campaigns to maintain Maori language, Indigenous Peoples Rise Up serves as one of the first studies of Indigenous social media use and activism.
Indigenous Motherhood in the Academy fills a longtime gap in higher education literature that has excluded Indigenous women scholar voices. The essays cover diverse topics such as acknowledging ancestors and grandparents in one’s mothering, how historical trauma and violence plague the past, how culture and place impact mothering, how academia impacts mothering, how mothering impacts scholarship, and how to negotiate loss and other complexities between motherhood and one’s role in the academy.
