CFP: Book Series on Health and Healing in Africa and the African Diaspora

We’re currently accepting proposals for a new book series: Routledge Research in Health and Healing in Africa and the African Diaspora. You may send a book proposal or a detailed query for preliminary review to the Series Editor, Donna A. Patterson or the Routledge Editor, Leann Hinves. They’ll be an opportunity to meet with the Series Editor, Professor Patterson, and discuss your book idea at this year’s Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) and African Studies Association (ASA) meetings. Do contact her if you wish to schedule a meeting.

We welcome proposals on a variety of topics in particular, public health, global health security, health care delivery, innovation in health, epidemics, women and children’s health, masculinity and health, mental health, traditional healing, and community initiatives. We seek publications from a range of disciplines and in some cases are interdisciplinary in nature from the social sciences, public and global health, clinical sciences, and the humanities. In addition, we seek research and analyses from area studies that transcends health issues, including African Studies, African American Studies, Caribbean Studies, and Women and Gender Studies and work that is transnational and that in some cases straddles more than one country or region.
