AEGIS announces Africa Book Series with Brill
AEGIS, the Africa-Europe Group for Interdisciplinary Studies, is pleased to announce the AEGIS Brill Africa Book Series.
Following the success of the 2005 AEGIS-sponsored European Conference of African Studies—the largest ever African Studies conference in Europe—AEGIS seeks to provide a new and much-needed venue for the publication of works drawn from the lively and expanding community of scholars with interests in Africa and its Diaspora.
The Series aims to publish books within the broad fields of study within the humanities and social sciences that would bring new approaches or innovative perspectives to the topics discussed. Titles will comprise works that could also reflect established debate within African Studies if they provide new insights.
Both individually-authored works and edited collections on focused themes will be considered. Included among Series authors will be both senior and junior scholars and preference may be given to newly established scholars that may benefit from this new outlet for publication.
The Series operates according to an academic review and publication process. Books will be released simultaneous in hardback and paperback editions. Discounted purchase prices will be offered to AEGIS members as well as to scholars in Africa.
Authors are requested to submit a prospectus (of no more than 1000 words) providing a summary of the work, a description of its intended audience, a word count, and the current status of the manuscript.
The first Deadline for submission of prospectus is 30 November 2011.
The prospectus should be accompanied by a brief cover letter and CV, and sent to:
