Critical Ethnic Studies
Critical Ethnic Studies explores the guiding question of the Critical Ethnic Studies Association: how do the histories of colonialism and conquest, racial chattel slavery, and white supremacist patriarchies and heteronormativities affect, inspire, and unsettle scholarship and activism in the present? By decentering the nation-state as a unit of inquiry, focusing on scholarship that expands the identity rhetoric of ethnic studies, engaging in productive dialogue with indigenous studies, and making critical studies of gender and sexuality guiding intellectual forces, this journal appeals to scholars interested in the methodologies, philosophies, and discoveries of this new intellectual formation.

Electronically mediated communication has established lasting and significant changes in society and culture, politics and economics, thinking and being. From the development, adoption, and now international ubiquity of the Internet to virtual reality technologies, the mainstream popularity of video games, the genre of literary hypertexts, and a proliferation of digital art and other new media art forms, technology has infused everyday life and all aspects of our interaction, communication, and expression. The books in this series explore the humanistic and social implications of these new technologies.
