The establishment of European colonial rule on the African continent not only involved the colonization of nature, but essentially meant colonization through nature. But in how far did decolonization across Africa south of the Sahara equally affect the sphere of ecology and relationships between humans and wildlife? Have Africa’s wild animals ever been decolonized?

Call for Papers: Antennae: Matter Matters
'Antennae' is soliciting academic and non-academic writing, along with artist portfolios and other experimental formats for inclusion in a forthcoming issue titled “Matter Matters”. The issue will focus on the intersection of new theories of materiality and the non-human involved in current practices that move beyond or critically address Postmodernist aesthetics.
Here is an admittedly incomplete list of some recent or forthcoming publications that might be of interest to H-Animalistas:
Geoffrey Barstow, Food of Sinful Demons: Meat, Vegetarianism, and the Limits of Buddhism in Tibet (Columbia University Press, 2017): https://cup.columbia.edu/book/food-of-sinful-demons/9780231179966

The Equine History Collective, EquineHistory.org, promotes the horse as a lens for trans-regional history, and serves as an interface for related historical research in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences. We are seeking reviewers for books (run on Sundays) and sources (run on Saturdays). The themes for upcoming months are: Racing (December), Ancient (January), and Breeding (February). Proposals for other topics are also welcome, and will run in later months.
Harvard Law School’s Animal Law & Policy Program is inviting applications for a four-month Fellowship to examine policy implications of proposed and potential legislation seeking to prevent U.S. states from regulating the in-state sale of “agricultural products” produced outside state borders.
The Fellowship will provide an opportunity for outstanding scholars and legal practitioners to undertake research, writing, and scholarly engagement on an issue that furthers the mission of the Animal Law & Policy Program.
