The University Press of Colorado is accepting manuscripts for publication in our Global Colonialism series, a collection of nonfiction books that investigate the effects of colonialism globally on both colonizers and the colonized. Books in the series will be selected from across a variety of fields, including archaeology, anthropology, ethnohistory, and history.
Conquest and colonization have characterized the human experience from the time of the emergence of state-level societies. We invite global case studies, from the earliest known examples in antiquity to the current day, as well as more synthetic works that study the ties between areas connected by colonialism. Books in this series should study colonial processes at a local level, while also examining how these processes connect to larger spheres and themes.
All proposals for the this series should follow the press submission guidelines, and submission will be evaluated by the press acquisitions staff, the series editors and/or editorial board, as well as outside experts.

Yupköyvi – The Place Beyond the Horizon is being featured this month at the Durango Independent Film Festival (March 3-12, 2021)
Independent filmmaker Larry Ruiz's Yupköyvi is an offshoot of the Hopi Perspectives video chapter (Chapter 9) in The Greater Chaco Landscape, edited by Ruth M. Van Dyke and Carrie C. Heitman. The film was also a selection of The Santa Fe Film Festival in February 2021.
Ruth M. Van Dyke is professor of anthropology at Binghamton University, SUNY. She is an archaeologist specializing in the North American Southwest, and her research interests include landscape, architecture, power, memory, phenomenology, and visual representation. She has written some fifty articles and book chapters, and she is author or editor of six books, including Subjects and Narratives in Archaeology and The Chaco Experience. She directs projects on the Chaco landscape in northwest New Mexico and on historic Alsatian immigration in Texas.
Every nine-year-old loves the idea of archaeology—the prospect of digging in the dirt and finding mysterious objects once touched by people from the past. A few of us actually grow up to do this for a living. Along the way we learn the complexities of our craft, and we master its intellectual traditions. We learn to practice anthropology with a material focus, engaging with human lives past and present.
