Africa and the Diaspora: History, Politics, Culture

Thomas Spear, Neil Kodesh, Tejumola Olaniyan, Michael G. Schatzberg, and James H. Sweet, Series Editors

We invite submission of proposals and manuscripts of innovative work based on original research, critical reviews and syntheses of a field or area, and texts or critical anthologies designed for classroom use. We welcome interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary work that addresses questions and debates of broad theoretical, empirical, methodological, and comparative significance in Africa and the Diaspora. We are also interested in co-publishing with European and African publishers and in translations of original works in French and other languages.

We are especially interested in works focusing on precolonial, colonial, and contemporary history; political history and politics; oral traditions and literature; anthropological approaches to contemporary problems and issues; and historical and cultural studies of Africans in the Diaspora.

Please send all inquiries to Thomas Spear and UW Press Director Dennis Lloyd.
