CALL FOR PAPERS: TRANSDISCIPLINARITY, TRANSFORMATION AND THE HUMANITIES Buoyed by discussions that have been circulating in African Studies and elsewhere in the Humanities, we want to stimulate modes of knowledge-production that challenge disciplinary boundaries. In addition, we want to investigate whether these challenges constitute transformation and, if so, what the consequences of that transformation might be. We invite submissions that engage critically with these (or other) debates around transdisciplinarity and transformation and the Humanities, or else,
Welcome to H-AfrArts, Expressive Cultures of Africa. H-AfrArts is composed of two parts, a discussion list and a web site cosponsored by Humanities and Social Sciences OnLine (H-Net) and the Arts Council of the African Studies Association (ACASA). Its content focuses on the expressive cultures of Africa and the African Diaspora.
The following jobs were posted to the H-Net Job Guide from 12 January 2015 to 19 January 2015. These job postings are included here based on the categories selected by the list editors for H-AfrArts.

At the moment I am working on a photo exhibition with regard to “African Slavery in Iran, 1830-1930”. This exhibition will be held in “Association Mémoire de l'Outre-mer” in Nantes, France April-May 2015. My approach in this project is visual/social anthropology and visual historiography.
I am trying to circulate this exhibition as much as it possible and am seeking possible collaborations. Interested individuals can contact me off list.
