TL;DR: Indigenous and allied scholars, knowledge keepers, scientists, learners, change-makers, and leaders are creating a field to support Indigenous peoples' capacities to address anthropogenic (human-caused) climate change.
Abstract: Indigenous and allied scholars, knowledge keepers, scientists, learners, change-makers, and leaders are creating a field to support Indigenous peoples’ capacities to address anthropogenic (human-caused) climate change. Provisionally, I call it Indigenous climate change studies (Indigenous studies, for short, in this essay). The studies involve many types of work, including Indigenous climate resiliency plans, such as the Salish-Kootenai Tribe’s Climate Change Strategic Plan that includes sections on “Culture” and “Tribal Elder Observations,” policy documents, such as the Inuit Petition expressing “the right to be cold,” conferences, such as “Climate Changed: Reflections on Our Past, Present and Future Situation,” organized by the Indigenous Peoples Climate Change Working Group, and numerous declarations and academic papers, from the Mandaluyong Declaration of the Global Conference on Indigenous Women, Climate Change and REDD to a special issue of the scientific journal Climatic Change devoted to Indigenous peoples in the U.S. context.

Abstract: Abstract:Recently, scholars have called for a \"critical ocean studies\" for the twenty-first century and have fathomed the oceanic depths in relationship to submarine immersions, multispecies others, feminist and Indigenous epistemologies, wet ontologies, and the acidification of an Anthropocene ocean. In this scholarly turn to the ocean, the concepts of fluidity, flow, routes, and mobility have been emphasized over other, less poetic terms such as blue water navies, mobile offshore bases, high-seas exclusion zones, sea lanes of communication (SLOCs), and maritime \"choke points.\" Yet this strategic military grammar is equally vital for a twenty-first-century critical ocean studies for the Anthropocene. Perhaps because it does not lend itself to an easy poetics, the militarization of the seas is overlooked and underrepresented in both scholarship and literature emerging from what is increasingly called the blue or oceanic humanities. This essay turns to the relationship between global climate change and the US military, particularly the Navy, and examines Indigenous challenges to the militarism of the Pacific in the poetry of Craig Santos Perez.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors explore the function of online spaces in the lives of the people who occupy it, how it is structured, and what it can do, and demonstrate the openended theorizing in which fan fiction writers and readers participate, bringing into a different sphere some conversations that continue to take place in spaces other than conferences and seminar rooms of academia.
Abstract: To me, slash is about cracks and crevices in a text, a yearning void in both the text and the reader. So space is a vacuum—something that isn’t there but could be. But in the larger terms of community, culture, politics, space is less about vacuum and more about potential.The slash space, to me, is remarkable in its fecundity. It is space that is never filled, potential that never runs out. No matter how many stories, how many writers, there’s always more space. Slash as space, space as both yearning void and infinite potential. (Julad 2003) o date, work on women, queerness, and online communities has mainly focused on lesbian and queer-identified women’s use of online space in the service of identity and sexuality narratives played out in the physical world.1 In this project, we expand the scope of such inquiries to include ways in which particular online spaces, cultures, and practices can queer women (and other gendered subjects) in ways not accounted for by most identity narratives. We are interested in the interactions between women which structure online media fandom, specifically the exchange of sexually explicit slash stories which depict relationships between male characters and actors from films, books, and television shows. In the virtual spaces we invoke in this paper, such shared sexual fantasies bring people together from a wide array of identities and locations. Our experience in slash fan communities on LiveJournal.com (LJ) suggests that participation in electronic social networks can induct us into new and unusual narratives of identity and sexuality, calling into question familiar identifications and assumptions. Slash fandom’s discursive sphere has been termed queer female space by some who inhabit and study it; we want to explore the function of this space in the lives of the people who occupy it, how it is structured, and what it can do. We have chosen not to pursue our exploration by producing an academic research essay which draws evidence from experts external to the community it discusses in order to construct an argument that will build to a final conclusion. Rather, we want to demonstrate the open-ended theorizing in which fan fiction writers and readers participate, bringing into a different sphere some conversations that continue to take place in spaces other than— though not always dissimilar to—the conferences and seminar rooms of academia.To do this, we created an online discussion space, which we used to invite some fellow fans to
