African Economic History was founded in 1974 by the African Studies Program at the University of Wisconsin and subsequently has also been associated with the Harriet Tubman Institute for Research on Africa and Its Diasporas at York University. The journal publishes scholarly essays in English and French on the economic history of African societies from precolonial times to the present. It features research in a variety of fields and time periods, including studies on labor, slavery, trade and commercial networks, economic transformations, colonialism, migration, development policies, social and economic inequalities, and poverty. The audience includes historians, economists, anthropologists, sociologists, political scientists, policymakers, and a range of other scholars interested in African economies—past and present.
