Currents of the Big River, the inaugural publication of a new journal

To support the creation of a new editorial position to work with indigenous authors for a new journal, Currents of the Big River.

Confluence, a Level I applicant, is seeking $50,000 in NEH American Rescue Plan funding to support the salary of one critical humanities staff position, Digital Content Manager, as she takes the next logical step to extend Confluence’s work: the inaugural publication of a new journal, Currents of the Big River. The published work will be exclusively by Indigenous authors, poets, storytellers, activists, and culture bearers, written in an accessible manner that is clear to a broad audience. Accepted work will pertain to the Columbia River system, be thought provoking and educational, and encourage Indigenous perspectives, intercultural appreciation, and diverse approaches. Project manager, Lily Hart, Confluence’s Digital Content Manager, will devote 60% of her time (936 hours) to this project as she works with the seven scholars who have committed to serve on the editorial advisory committee, selected Indigenous authors, and the five scholars who have agreed to serve as peer reviewers.
