Women and Indigenous Studies
UBC Press is pleased to present its series in Women and Indigenous Studies. The series publishes works establishing a new understanding of Indigenous women’s perspectives and experiences, by researchers in a range of fields. By bringing women’s issues to the forefront, this series invites and encourages innovative scholarship that offers new insights on Indigenous questions, past, present, and future. Books in this series will appeal to readers seeking stimulating explorations and in-depth analysis of the roles, relationships, and representations of Indigenous women in history, politics, culture, ways of knowing, health, and community well-being.
The series, which encourages works by Aboriginal and women scholars, invites submissions from all researchers working in this area.
