Mohawk Interruptus is a bold challenge to dominant thinking in the fields of Native studies and anthropology. Combining political theory with ethnographic research among the Mohawks of Kahnawà:ke, a reserve community in what is now southwestern Quebec, Audra Simpson examines their struggles to articulate and maintain political sovereignty through centuries of settler colonialism. The Kahnawà:ke Mohawks are part of the Haudenosaunee or Iroquois Confederacy. Like many Iroquois peoples, they insist on the integrity of Haudenosaunee governance and refuse American or Canadian citizenship. Audra Simpson thinks through this politics of refusal, which stands in stark contrast to the politics of cultural recognition. Tracing the implications of refusal, Simpson argues that one sovereign political order can exist nested within a sovereign state, albeit with enormous tension around issues of jurisdiction and legitimacy. Finally, Simpson critiques anthropologists and political scientists, whom, she argues, have too readily accepted the assumption that the colonial project is complete. Belying that notion, Mohawk Interruptus calls for and demonstrates more robust and evenhanded forms of inquiry into indigenous politics in the teeth of settler governance.

In diesem Buch der renommierten indisch-amerikanischen Literaturwissenschaftlerin geht es zunachst um die kritische Sichtung einfluss- und folgenreicher philosophischer Denkansatze seit Kant, die das Mittel- und Westeuropaische mit Hilfe von Minderwertigkeitskonstrukten als menschliche Norm etablieren. Eine solche kolonialpolitische Normierung mitsamt ihrer "naturlichen" Denkstrukturen bedarf einer dekonstruktiven Kritik. Gezeigt wird sodann anhand einschlagiger literarischer Texte, wie Kolonialismus und Postkolonialitat Gestalt annehmen: Charlotte Bronte, Mary Shelley, Charles Baudelaire, Rudyard Kipling, Jean Rhys, Mahasweta Devi, John M. Coetzee. Es gilt sich der Geschichte der verrinnenden Gegenwart als einem differenzierenden Ereignis zuzuwenden: "unserer Kultur" - dem Wechselspiel von Multikulturalismus und Globalitat.

Settler colonialism in Canada has traditionally been portrayed as a gentler, if not benevolent, colonialism—especially in contrast to the Indian Wars in the United States. This national mythology has penetrated into comparative genocide studies, where Canadian case studies are rarely discussed in edited volumes, genocide journals, or multi-national studies. Indeed, much of the extant literature on genocide in Canada rests at the level of self-justification, whereby authors draw on the U.N Genocide Convention or some other rubric to demonstrate that Canadian genocides are a legitimate topic of scholarly concern. In recent years, however, discussion of genocide in Canada has become more pronounced, particularly in the wake of the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. This volume contributes to this ongoing discourse, providing scholarly analyses of the multiple dimensions or processes of colonial destruction and their aftermaths in Canada. Various acts of genocidal violence are covered, including residential schools, repressive legal or governmental controls, ecological destruction, and disease spread. Additionally, contributors draw comparisons to patterns of colonial destruction in other contexts, examine the ways in which Canada has sought to redress and commemorate colonial harms, and present novel theoretical and conceptual insights on colonial/settler genocides in Canada. This book was previously published as a special issue of the Journal of Genocide Research.
