Call for Articles
Welcome to H-AfrTeach, a network whose mission is to provide a stimulating forum for considering the possibilities and problems involved in teaching about Africa. It is intended for a wide audience, encompassing educators, students and others with an interest in teaching about Africa at all educational levels.
The network has been fairly inactive since its transition to the Commons, but we're in the process of reviving it! In the next few weeks, we hope to launch syllabus and assignment collections, followed by textbook reviews from instructors in the field (for more, please see our new editor introduction).
If you have any materials you'd like to contribute--sample syllabi, successful assignments, discussions of useful texts and documents, or other resources--please feel free to post a discussion or email the editors at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested taking a more active role, see our call for editors here.

Is anybody in the region doing research on refugees, demographic trends, emigration, or population studies? I could participate in a panel on related topics if we could get a team together.
I started with Shillington about 20 years ago, then moved over to Khapoya, then to the Gilbert & Reynolds book. Recently, I switched to Robert Harms, _Africa in Global History_. I much prefer the latter for its clarity and accessibility in the source materials and global theme.
