This panel, “Indigenous Studies and Black Studies: New Directions,” assembles leading scholars of Black and Indigenous solidarities, intimacies, and frictions. (Shanya Cordis, Khalil Johnson, Chad Infante) Resisting a tendency to reduce this relation to the instrumental logics of race and multiculturalism in the United States, the contributors draw on perspectives from the disciplines of history, anthropology, and cultural studies to bridge the Black and Indigenous geographies of North America, South America, and the Caribbean. Unsettling approaches that render Blackness and Indigeneity as antagonistic formations–and Indigenous Studies and Black Studies as irreconcilable tendencies–this panel alerts us to the political economy of settler colonialism in the longue durée as a dynamic relation of race and capital cast across distinct conjunctures and geographies.
