African Perspectives Logo 
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 and Anne Pitcher will build 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.

For additional information about the series, please contact Dr. Ellen Bauerle, Executive Editor, University of Michigan Press: bauerle@umich.edu.  Queries should be accompanied by a current C.V., project description (200 words), table of contents, brief descriptions of chapters (50 words each), estimated length of ms. in words, estimated date of completion, and indication as to number of images, tables, etc.
