Downsizing home photocopy library


I am downsizing my home files and would like to divest myself of about 40 years of photocopies in West African and general African history {primarily}--Islamic history, pre-colonial Africa, some colonial, etc.  If anyone wants to pay postage for this material, I will box it up and send it to you.  I cannot send you an inventory.  Please reply offlist to klgreen@mvsu.edu.

Ann.: New textbook on African women's history

Dear friends and colleagues,

I am very pleased to let you know that my book -- African Women: Early History to the 21st Century -- has been published by Indiana University Press - just in time for summer reading and to consider for your fall or spring classes. While it is obviously essential for courses on African women, it will also be an important addition to reading lists for African history in general.

We are excited to use these tools to continue to make H-Africa a go-to resource for scholars in the field.

Invitation to Join the Global Urban History Project

Scholars who study cities in relation to larger-scale and global phenomena are invited to become members of the Global Urban History Project, an effort to build sustained connections across professional associations within the growing hybrid field of global urban history.

The Project represents a merger of several networks of scholars in the field. The Project especially welcome scholars who focus on Global South urban questions and on pre-1850 periods.
