Call for Bloggers: H-West Africa at the African Studies Association meeting

Hello subscribers,

The African Studies Association annual meeting is less a month away, on the 19-22 of November in San Diego, California. The new editorial team at H-West Africa is looking to recruit some of our members who will be attending to help author a blog about the goings on at the conference. We are searching for an interdisciplinary group that can bring multiple perspectives to the various panels, roundtables, lectures and films and provide commentary for those of us who will not be able to attend this year.
