H-Africa, Discussion Group

                    Announcement of H-AFRICA

H-AFRICA is a moderated electronic discussion group and bulletin board for scholars (including graduate students), librarians, and teachers interested in the African past, including a variety of disciplines and approaches to the history of the entire continent. A part of the H-Net family of LISTSERV discussion lists, H-AFRICA encourages informed discussions of teaching and research on African history at all levels of interest and complexity.

The primary purpose of H-AFRICA is to provide a forum for those interested in the serious study of African history to communicate openly. In this spirit, H-AFRICA welcomes research reports and inquiries, syllabi and course materials, bibliographies, listings of new sources, library and archive information, non-commerical announcements of books, journals, conferences, fellowships, jobs, and funding opportunities, as well as reports on new software, datasets or CD-ROMs relevant to the African past.

H-AFRICA is currently edited by Professor Mel Page of East Tennessee State University and Professor Harold Marcus of Michigan State University, who may be reached at:

Mel Page
Harold Marcus

The editors consult with an editorial board of international scholars broadly representative of the state of the discipline.
