Novel Alliances is a collection of essays, notes, and reflections on Indigenous politics, arts, and new media shared from an allied perspective. The blog began as a way for the author to share conference papers, but it gradually became a space to workshop new ideas, begin conversations, and meet potential collaborators. You can read more on the how Novel Alliances functions as a research and publishing tool here.
Novel Alliances also now hosts content, particularly teaching resources, from third party contributors. See, for instance, the Collective Statement of Learning, written by students of FNIS 310. If you are a teacher, student, or emerging author and would like to contribute please email firstname.lastname@example.org
