Our new book on American Indians and popular culture arrives in February, right on the heels of ruminations about how politics and science are fused.
Because my work examines how Native American cultural values are treated in mediated discourse within scientific controversies, I contributed a chapter on Kennewick Man and constructed (media) identity for volume 1, which is dedicated primarily to media and politics.
I’m looking forward to reading the chapter by John Peacock titled, “Will electronic media be the death or rebirth of endangered American Indian languages?” I hope to learn more about the role of social media in native circles.
Other chapters examine Indians in early radio and silent films, stereotypes in advertising, and the American Indian Movement.
The second volume is dedicated to literature, arts and resistance, according to our fabulous editor, Elizabeth DeLaney Hoffman. Pow wow and museum cultures are among the topics covered.
