Studies in African Humanities

ISSN No: 2058-2854
Series Editor(s):
Augustine Agwuele

Series Description

The Studies in African Humanities Series recognizes that the various different fields of the humanities are not only interrelated, but also feed one another, providing a more complete understanding of humans, their lives, and their societies. An overreliance on any one theory alone undoubtedly underestimates the complexities associated with day-to-day living in continents like Africa, known for its rich diversity.

The Series editors, made up of noted African Studies scholars teaching in North America, Europe and Africa, are particularly interested in manuscripts that meaningfully explicate existing issues germane to the wellbeing of the continent and its people, wherever they may be. With the motto “the scholarship of now for the people of now”, the editors welcome all works—whether qualitative, quantitative, empirical, or fieldwork-based,—that are focused on themes that have a direct impact on the life of the people of Africa, including linguistics, political studies, popular culture, religion, and philosophy.
