The University of Alabama Press is pleased to announce the new book series


Denise E. Bates and Margaret Vaughan, series editors

This series provides a venue for innovative and interdisciplinary scholarship on historical and contemporary Indigenous issues in global contexts. Keeping pace with current conversations and approaches in the field, Contemporary Issues and Methods in Indigenous Studies is a reimagining of Alabama’s Contemporary American Indian Studies series. While continuing to amplify approaches used to produce critical work on Indigenous heritage preservation, the persistence of cultural practices, and legal and political engagement in the United States and Latin America, this new series expands its geographic footprint to account for fresh perspectives, methodological approaches, and conceptual frameworks aimed at centralizing Indigenous voices. This series focuses on critical findings and creative approaches in Indigenous research methods, governance, community planning, cultures, arts, languages, geographies, intellectual systems, health and wellness, education, popular culture, intersectional identities, and speculative futures.

Books in the series target Indigenous studies scholars, graduate and undergraduate students, leaders and educators in Indigenous communities and organizations, and the general public seeking accessible and authoritative works on Indigenous topics.

Please contact the series editors, Denise E. Bates ( or Margaret Vaughan (, to discuss your book project and receive prospectus information.
