CFP (Panel): NACBS panel: pilgrimage/travel/religious identity

I'm seeking papers for a potential panel at the 2018 NACBS conference.  At the moment, we have two papers that address issues of pilgrimage and religious identity:  one paper looks at 17th c. Scottish travelers in the Levant and the ways in which they negotiated their religious identities through dress and through ideas of pilgrimage.  The second looks at late 19th c.

Revue des mondes musulmans de la Méditerranée. Cemeteries and tombs at the crossroads of religious, political, and urban issues

Re: New book announcement: Du Lac Tchad à La Mecque. Le sultanat du Borno et son monde (16e-17e s.) / From Lake Chad to Mecca. Borno Sultanate and its World (16th-17th c.)

Dear all,

The book is only in French, yet. I hope I will propose an English version as soon as possible.

Regarding Cleo Cantone's proposal, I would be glad to accept. I'll send the proposal to the Editions de la Sorbonne. We already sent a copy to the Journal of African History. Therefore, you could do it for the Journal of Islamic Africa.

Best regards.

Dear Ed if I may,

I would like to review your book and was thinking of either the Journal of Islamic Africa or the Journal of African History or if already taken, for a journal you recommend.

Many thanks in advance,
Cleo Cantone
