Exchanges: The Interdisciplinary Research Journal
Bringing our 2021 series of publications to a close with a record fourth issue, Exchanges is delighted to announce the imminent release of volume 9(1) of the journal. This issue as always presents a range of pieces on topics as wide-ranging as Norbert Elias and time, Samuel Becket, microbial rivers, public engagement with the GMO debate and the challenges faced by early career scholars in publishing or research. Alongside future regular issues, work is advancing on three special issues expected to be published throughout 2022 and into early 2022.
The new issue of the journal will go live from Thursday (28th Oct) afternoon and can be accessed on its website and via a DOI link:
Exchanges as a journal is dedicated to supporting and propagating research discourse primarily, but not exclusively, from early career scholars around the globe. Framed in an interdisciplinary mode, articles are intended to be read by a broad academic audience. The journal also has a strong developmental ethos, embraced within its editorial culture and increasing authorial development outreach activities. The journal’s operations are managed by an Editor-in-Chief based at the IAS, and supported with an Editorial Board network associated with institutions comprising Warwick’s global research partners.

Dr. Dian Million presents: "Be like the wind--or better, like water: Indigenous resistance to racial capitalism’s forever wars"

Researchers @ RICH, Radboud University, and the Decolonial/Postcolonial Working Group @ IAS, University of Warwick, present a special guest talk by Dian Million, (Tanana), Ph.D., Associate Professor and Chair, Department of American Indian Studies, University of Washington.

Dian Million’s talk is part of a short online lecture series called Voices on Indigenous Dispossession and Reclamations. This series of events is organised by Dr Doro Wiese, supported by the European Union and the Institute of Advanced Study, University of Warwick, and in cooperation with Dr. Laura De Vos and Dr. Mathilde Roza, Radboud University, as well as the Decolonial/Postcolonial Working Group at the University of Warwick. This series hopes to demonstrate that it is paramount to examine Indigenous dispossession and to make it a central category when analysing the political economy of settler-colonial societies. It searches for and establishes alternative ways of organising life and living well, especially for and by Indigenous intellectuals.

You can register for this event here.
