About this product
- DescriptionThis transnational collection discusses the use of Native American imagery in twentieth and twenty-first-century European culture. With examples ranging from Irish oral myth, through the pop image of Indians promulgated in porgraphy, to the philosophical appropriations of Ernst Bloch or the European far right, contributors illustrate the legend of the Indian. Drawing on American Indian literary nationalism, postcolonialism, and transnational theories, essays demonstrate a complex nexus of power relations that seemingly allows European culture to build its own Native images, and ask what effect this has on the current treatment of indigeus peoples.
