Call for contributions to Leeds African Studies Bulletin #80 (2018/19)

The Leeds African Studies Bulletin is published annually by the Leeds University Centre for African Studies (LUCAS).  Founded in 1964, it has published pieces by many distinguished African writers and Africanist scholars over the years, including Wole Soyinka, Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o, Jack Mapanje, James Currey, Morris Szeftel, Michael Barratt Brown, Abdulrazak Gurnah, Martin Banham, the late Lionel Cliffe, Ray Bush, Femi Osofisan, James Gibbs and Jane Plastow.   We would welcome proposals for articles for our forthcoming issue which can be on any aspect of African Studies.  We would like to invite people to submit a 200-word abstract (by 2 July 2018). If selected, the full article of 6,000-8,000 words should be submitted by 1 September 2018 latest. The decision about final acceptance for publication is subject to peer review.

Please email any queries or proposals to african-studies@leeds.ac.uk, while for more information about the Bulletin including details of past issues please see here: http://lucas.leeds.ac.uk/bulletin/
