Routledge Studies on African and Black Diaspora

The Series Routledge Studies on African and Black Diaspora is designed as a forum that confronts established academic boundaries in the study of the social, cultural, and political history of people of African descent while at the same time exploring the contours of knowledge production and understanding about Africa and its diaspora through rigorous and critical scrutiny.

The series marks a critical development in publishing theoretically, and historically significant works on the lived experiences of people of African descent in all parts of the world. The series publishes original works of the highest quality from across the broad disciplinary fields of social sciences and humanities, emphasizing theoretically informed and empirically grounded texts. Focus issues include the centrality of power and resistance, knowledge production, gendered cartographies, memory, race, class, and other aspects of social identity in exploring different dimensions (cultural, geographic, political, social, and psychological) through which people of African descent have moved in the context of globalized and transnational spaces.

The editors welcome book proposals as well as manuscripts that address issues related to African and Black Diaspora. Single authored manuscripts, as well as thematically coherent edited volumes, will be considered.
