New book by Jane Carey and Jane Lydon – Indigenous Networks: Mobility, Connections and Exchange

Jane Carey and Jane Lydon (eds), Indigenous Networks: Mobility, Connections and Exchange (Routledge, 2014)

This edited collection argues for the importance of recovering Indigenous participation within global networks of imperial power and wider histories of ‘transnational’ connections. It takes up a crucial challenge for new imperial and transnational histories: to explore the historical role of colonized and subaltern communities in these processes, and their legacies in the present. Bringing together prominent and emerging scholars who have begun to explore Indigenous networks and ‘transnational’ encounters, and to consider the broader significance of ‘extra-local’ connections, exchanges and mobility for Indigenous peoples, this work engages closely with some of the key historical scholarship on transnationalism and the networks of European imperialism.
