Dear friends and collegues,
 
We are pleased to share with you the CFP of a special issue we are coordinating Gina Aït Mehdi and myself for the Journal Politique Africaine about the question of madness and mental disorders in Africa.
 
 
The starting point of this issue on madness in Africa is based on a first observation. The literature on this topic appears fragmented and dispersed. On one hand, this theme of research remains in many ways untapped and relatively isolated from some contemporary approaches produced outside the continent. On the other hand, the existing literature is very uneven across geographical areas and disciplines. We therefore call on researchers from the human and social sciences to participate in the building of an interdisciplinary dialogue on the issue of mental disorders on the continent.
