Africana Annual: a journal of African and African Diaspora Studies

The Department of African & African American Studies at the University of Kansas is proud to announce the establishment of Africana Annual and to invite the submission of full-length articles and review essays. Africana Annual is a broadly conceived annual interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal. The principal focus of the journal is to create and facilitate critical dialogue and analysis of the African, African American, and African Diasporic experiences. An interdisciplinary journal encompassing history, politics, sociology, performance arts, economics, literature, cultural studies, anthropology, Africana studies, gender studies, ethnic studies, religious studies, the fine arts, and other allied disciplines. Africana Annual embraces a variety of humanistic and social scientific methodologies for understanding the social, political, and cultural meanings and functions of the varied experiences of Africana. We invite authors to submit work that examines key issues or profound topics on African America, Africa (north and south of the Sahara), and the Diaspora.
