Critical Indigenous Theory

The September 2009 issue of Cultural Studies Review, co-edited by Aileen Moreton-Robinson, grew out of the Indigenous Studies Research Network, which is located at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia. All the contributors to the Critical Indigenous Theory section of the issue are members of the network and the issue showcases critical theory developed from their respective standpoints and epistemologies. These scholars are politically and intellectually engaged in demonstrating how critical Indigenous studies as a mode of analysis can offer accounts of the contemporary world that centre Indigenous ways of knowing and theorising. The writing is challenging and innovative, engaging theory to questions that concern the writers and their communities. These new conceptual models have grown productively out of the postcolonising world the contributors inhabit. In nation states such as the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, these writers show, colonisation has not ceased to exist—it has only changed in form from that which their ancestors encountered.

The issue also includes some general essays and book reviews.
