Routledge Studies on African and Black Diaspora


About the Series

Routledge  Studies  on  African  and  Black  Diaspora is  designed  as  a  forum  that confronts established  academic  boundaries  in  the  study  of  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  with  a  strong  emphasis  on 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  the  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.  Inquiries should be directed to the Series Editors or the Routledge editor:
