The Ruth Simms Hamilton African Diaspora series at Michigan State University Press presents the past and contemporary experiences of African people throughout the world, written by emerging and established scholars in various fields in the social sciences and humanities in pursuit of a reconceptualization of the historical global movements of African peoples. This series pays tribute to the life and legacy of Dr. Ruth Simms Hamilton, a pioneer in African Diaspora Studies, and builds on her seminal work and conceptualization of the African Diaspora.

We are seeking abstracts (300 words) for essays (7500-8500 words, excluding notes) on the topic of the “Afterlife in the African Diaspora” for an edited collection on this important and underexplored area of inquiry.

Reply: The future of H-Afrteach

I would encourage Africanist scholars to contribute as editors to the H-Net networks on Africa - there are 12 such networks, although several are small and not active at this point. Some editors left when H-Net transitioned from the old listserv format to the Commons, and it has sometimes been difficult to recruit and retain editors. At the same time many of the networks have seen an upsurge in the number of subscribers, and I believe those subscribers see a lot of value in being part of a strong network.
