Welcome to H-West-Africa, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences Online. H-West-Africa is free and open to everyone with an interest in the West African history and culture.
As many list members are probably aware, the National Archives of Senegal have been closed since October 2014 for much-needed renovations to the building. Having visited the archives earlier this month, I thought it would be helpful to share that they will in all likelihood remain closed for several more months at least. Though in Dakar I heard that there were plans to open a sort of off-site annex where documents could be consulted, this seems unlikely for the time being.

This is a cross-posting from H-Maritime, added here because I heard from the Organising Committee that they are particularly interested in contributions from the field of African maritime history, especially by researchers from Africa. The submission deadline for paper proposals has been extended to 31 October 2015.
