Call for Papers — Volume III

The American Indian College Fund  believes it is critical to support tribal college faculty in conducting research that benefits Native communities, and disseminating research to both Native communities and the wider research community. In 2013 and 2015, respectively, the College Fund published two volumes of research by current and former Tribal College and University (TCU) faculty who were recipients of Mellon Career Enhancement fellowships through the College Fund. Building on this two-volume research publication series, the College Fund initiated a new journal open to all current TCU faculty conducting research and writing for publication.

The purpose of this journal is to publish the work of TCU scholars in a peer-reviewed and widely disseminated journal. The first volume consists of two issues published in 2016 and 2017; the second volume is scheduled for publication in 2017. This is the call for papers for Volume III, to be published in August 2018.
