New Frameworks and Narratives

Exploring Settler Engagement in Indigenous Publishing Initiatives, Jarin Pintana, Simon Fraser University

Many publishing institutions and organizations are striving to improve the ways that they are supporting Indigenous voices in publishing. In an ongoing research project in partnership with the Indigenous Editors Association (IEA), an inventory of publishing initiatives which support Indigenous publishing is being recorded with comparative focus on Canada and Australia. This presentation will review project findings to date, discuss some of the emerging trends from the research, as well as examine ethical considerations of settler scholars working on Indigenous research and settler organizations/institutions working to support Indigenous literature.
