About the Author

David Chandler is Professor of International Relations and Director of the Centre for the Study of Democracy at the University of Westminster, UK. Julian Reid is Chair and Professor of International Relations at the University of Lapland, Finland.


Written by two of the most important political theorists writing on the Anthropocene, Becoming Indigenous is an agenda-setting critique. It deftly indicts and exposes the shocking ways in which indigenous peoples are being framed and saturated with meaning by others; reduced to tropes of mere adaptation and resilience or to sites of speculation: reducing meaningful resistance and politics. -- Jonathan Pugh, Senior Academic Fellow in Territorial Governance, University of Newcastle
Faced with the end times of climate catastrophe, we are all compelled to 'become indigenous'. Chandler and Reid track the adoption of indigenous knowledge across Western scholarship, government policy and activism-not to address historic dispossession and exclusion, but as resources for newly imagined Western futures. This important and provocative book exposes fault lines in the most influential critical theory of our times. Tracking relationships between the colonization of indigenous imagination and the policing of indigenous imaginaries, Becoming Indigenous clears new ground for differently figured politics of coexistence. -- Melinda Hinkson, Associate Professor of Anthropology, Deakin University, Australia
