Abstract: The plant genus Cannabis— encompassing both the textile fiber known as hemp and the medicinal flower— was instrumental in the colonization of North America. Columbus’s so-called discovery of the New World would have been impossible without sails and ropes made of hemp. Native American Studies (NAS) is an academic discipline born of political activism […]


Abstract: The development of settler colonialism as an autonomous scholarly field has, in the main, bypassed most sport historians. Colonialism and settler colonialism share the feature of exogenous domination over their destinations, but the differences are stark in relation to population structure, claims of sovereignty, colonial and settler mindsets, and narrative making. The characteristics of […]


Abstract: Sport has been, and continues to be, a very significant component of Indigenous lives. Sport was central to life on missions, reserves, and settlements in Australia, and at residential, boarding, and industrial schools and on reserves in Canada and the United States of America.

Abstract: How should teachers of international relations in settler-colonial states engage with First Nations’ sovereignty claims? While a growing body of recent scholarship explores how teaching might acknowledge and move beyond the discipline’s racist and colonial origins, less research investigates how pedagogy might rectify inattention to Indigenous sovereignty. This paper reports on a class activity […]

Through case studies of the salmon canning and forestry industries in the early-to-mid-twentieth century in […]


Abstract: Heterosexualism is inextricably tied to coloniality and modernity. This paper explores the potential of Argentinian philosopher Maria Lugones’ theorisations of heterosexualism and the colonial/modern gender system for sustained critical engagement with settler colonialism in so-called Australia. ‘Heterosexualism’ refers to a system of relations between settlers and Indigenous peoples characterized by racialized and gendered power […]


Abstract: Despite contact with the Zionist movement by some cabinet members prior to the First World War, and efforts to advocate for the movement and gain support for its goals, the British did not fully begin to come to terms with the aims, intentions, and methods of Zionism in Palestine until after the Balfour Declaration. […]


Abstract: Whether there are common features inherent to the psychology of Indigenous peoples around the globe has been the subject of much debate. We argue that Indigenous peoples share the experience of colonization and its social and psychological consequences. We develop this argument across four sections: (a) the global history of colonization and social inequalities; […]
