African Perspectives Series
African Perspectives publishes the highest quality and most innovative research from scholars based in and beyond Africa. We seek exemplary work that unsettles conventions of Africanist scholarship. Our remit spans disciplinary approaches from anthropology to politics to public health, qualitative to quantitative methods, and thematic interests from musicology and literary studies to development and urban planning. The series privileges work grounded in field research in any of the countries of Africa and publishes studies by both well-established and emerging scholars. Monographs that offer imaginative
solutions to contemporary social, cultural, technological and environmental problems are especially welcome.
Series editors Kelly Askew, Laura Fair, and Pamila Gupta are building upon the University of Michigan’s distinctive position in the field of African studies, as exemplified by the Department of Afroamerican and African Studies and the African Studies Center, wherein interdisciplinary and international research clusters in the humanities, social sciences and STEM disciplines have flourished.
