What is AlterNative?

AlterNative: An International Journal of Indigenous Peoples is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal. We aim to present indigenous worldviews and scholarly research from native indigenous perspectives from around the world. AlterNative is published quarterly in print and online. AlterNative publishes papers that substantively address and critically engage with indigenous issues from a scholarly indigenous viewpoint. All papers must address and engage with current international and national literature and academic and/or indigenous theory and make a significant contribution to the field of indigenous studies.

The latest issue of AlterNative is now available online and in print. Highlights in this issue are two articles which focus on indigenous bereavement practices. Also notable is an article from Canada which looks at the health-seeking behaviour of Aboriginal youth in distress, as well as two articles which deal with settler-colonial practices of land alienation in the 19th century.

Enjoy FREE ACCESS to the lead article “It’s like going to a cemetery and lighting a candle”: Aboriginal Australians, Sorry Business and social media by Bronwyn Carlson and Ryan Frazer, until the end of September 2015. Click here to access the article.

A Unique Experience By #Yu’pik Director: SHORE #Dance Performance, October 11-18th

unnamed(Photo from Native Arts & Cultures Foundation)

“SHORE is a multi-day performance installed in four equal parts:

Dance, Story, Volunteerism & Feast. “

“If you are seeking an amazing arts adventure and live in or near Seattle, Wash., it is not too late to attend and/or participate in “SHORE”.

“SHORE” examines the metaphorical convergence of environments—beginning where land meets water and vice-versa called ‘shore.’  “SHORE’s” performance incorporates the elements of volunteerism, story and dance and concludes with a “feast” – all of which result in a dynamic and powerful community participatory experience.

Choreographed and directed by Emily Johnson (Yup’ik), “SHORE” is an outstanding  achievement in innovative installation dance performance and community engagement.  Ms. Johnson’s work further advocates for the principles incorporated in traditional Native culture that emphasize the value placed on social equity within the broader community.

The last opportunity to experience “SHORE”  will be in Seattle the week of October 11th through 18th, 2015, when it completes its 2015 tour at various locations to be announced.

To become involved as an audience member or participant, choose any of these event dates:

  • STORY, October 11:  Local writers share their work relating to home, place and land in a curated reading at Hugo House.
  • VOLUNTEERISM, TBA:  Community members are invited to come together to address an issue of local concern through action.
  • PERFORMANCE, October 15-17:  The heart of the project is a multi-layered dance piece featuring community singers and movers together with dancers from Emily’s group, Catalyst Dance. Performances will be held at On the Boards.
  • FEAST, October 18:  SHORE ends in a community potluck. Participants are invited to bring dishes to share with the gathered community.

“SHORE” is one of the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation’s Community Inspiration Projects. For more information about SHORE and Seattle locations, please go to the SHORE website.

Nimrod Journal: Call For #Submissions, April 2016 Edition #LGBTQIA

fan

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:

Nimrod International Journal at The University of Tulsa invites you to submit to our 2016 spring issue. Nimrod is the University of Tulsa biannual literary journal, founded in 1956 and dedicated to the discovery of emerging voices in literature.

Title:
Mirrors and Prisms: Writers of Marginalized Orientations and Gender Identities

This year has seen a remarkable shift within the United States in relation to the gay rights movement. Nimrod International Journal has historically celebrated and championed writing by people from marginalized populations, whether those be nation, ethnicity, or age. This year, we’re thrilled to announce an issue devoted to writing from LGBTQIA community.

For our Spring/Summer 2016 issue, Mirrors and Prisms: Writers of Marginalized Orientations and Gender Identities, Nimrod International Journal is seeking poems, short stories, and creative nonfiction pieces from writers who identify along the LGBTQIA spectrum.

What We Are Seeking:

We invite poems, short stories, and creative nonfiction pieces from writers who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, or asexual, or anywhere under the umbrella term MOGAI (marginalized orientations, gender identities, and intersex). Work may be about any subject and, while we certainly welcome work about sexual identity, coming out, etc., work submitted for the issue is not limited to these subjects.

We hope to receive a large variety of material for this issue, including work from LGBTQIA writers of color, writers of varying socio-economic status, physically different writers, and neuroatyptical writers. Most of all, we hope to be surprised.

What We Are Not Seeking (for this issue):

We are not looking for work by straight allies of the LGBTQIA movement. While allies are a vital part of the movement, in this issue we wish to focus exclusively on writing by persons of marginalized orientations and gender identities. If you are a straight ally with a piece of work related to the movement or about your own experiences with friends and family, we ask that you send your work as a general submission so that we can consider it for a future issue. In short, while we truly do want to see and consider work by allies and will accept it for future issues, we also want to clarify that this particular issue will focus on writing by LGBTQIA writers.

The Specifics:

  • Stories and creative nonfiction may be up to 7,500 words; poetry may be up to 8 pages.
  • All work must be previously unpublished.
  • Work may be about any subject and, while we certainly welcome work about sexual identity, coming out, etc., work submitted for the issue is not limited to these subjects. We seek to celebrate the writers themselves and their work, rather than to limit submissions to works that specifically address issues of sexual orientation. In other words, send us whatever you like!
  • You may submit poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, but we ask that they be sent as separate submissions.
  • Fiction should be typed, double-spaced with 1” margins on all sides, one side of plain white paper only. Poetry should be typed, one side of plain white paper only.
  • For those submitting by mail: Please mark both your cover letter and the outer envelope with “Spring 2016 Theme.” Send a SASE for response. Postal submissions are free.
  • For those submitting online: You may submit work online at: https://nimrodjournal.submittable.com/submit. A $3 fee is charged for online submissions to cover the administrative costs associated with those submissions.

Manuscripts accepted beginning August 10th, 2015.

Postmark Deadline: December 5th, 2015.

Publication Date: April 2016

Nimrod is published in print by The University of Tulsa, with issues appearing twice a year. All contributors to the magazine receive two copies of the issues in which their works appears.

Cover Reveal: “The Island” by Clarissa Johal, Pre-Order Now!

theisland

“Exploring a remote island can sometimes get you into trouble.

Especially when you stumble upon a cave and awaken two demons.”

Emma Keller’s estranged grandmother has been missing for seven years. Emma journeys to her grandmother’s private island with the task of readying it for sale. Local rumors say it’s cursed, but she dismisses them as superstition. While there, she unearths a hidden cave, and is visited by two men soon after. Itu is well-spoken, though he hides his face in shadow. The other is more of a worry; with skin of alabaster, Thim’s feral presence sets her on edge. Emma discovers the island has a dark past. The two men aren’t human, but awakened demons…and they have their sights set on her.”
