About the journal

Welcome to the international Journal of Critical Indigenous Studies. The editors of the journal are Professor Aileen Moreton-Robinson, Queensland University of Technology, Australia and Dr Mark McMillan, University of Melbourne, Australia.

The International Journal of Critical Indigenous Studies disseminates scholarship across the Humanities, Social Sciences, Health Sciences, Law and Education in the field of Indigenous Studies. Indigenous scholars from around the world share common experiences of colonisation. Our collective politics have been shaped by our intellectual traditions which inform our work within the academy.

As Critical Indigenous Studies is a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary field the journal’s epistemological framework encompasses but is not restricted to Sociology, Law, Literature, Psychology, Education, Anthropology, History, Economics, Philosophy, Politics, Visual and Performing Arts, Cultural studies, Queer studies, Feminism, Human Geography, Environmentalism, Postcolonial studies and Race studies.

As a fully peer refereed journal with distinguished members across a range of disciplines on the editorial board, the quality of accepted submissions is of the highest standard. The journal brings together emergent and ground breaking research in the field of Indigenous studies within the global community offering scope for critical international engagement and debate.

We publish twice a year and all issues can be downloaded.
