Sources and methods in indigenous studies

Chris Andersen (Editor), Jean M. O'Brien (Editor)
"A synthesis of changes and innovations in methodologies in indigenous studies, focusing on sources over a broad chronological spread. Written by an international team of experts from across a range disciplines, this collection offers insight into the methodological approaches contributors take to research, and how methods have evolved in recent years. The book has a two part structure that looks, firstly, at the theoretical and disciplinary shifting of Indigenous Studies within history, literature, anthropology and the social sciences. Chapters in this section show that, while engaging with other disciplines, Indigenous Studies has forged its own intellectual path by borrowing and innovating from other fields. In part two, the book examines different areas with which sources for indigenous history have been engaged, including the importance of family in scholarly methodologies, gender, feminism and sexuality in Indigenous Studies, and various elements of expressive culture such as material culture, literature and museums."--Provided by publisher
