Editorial Reviews

Review

"Truly remarkable, innovative, important, and critical scholarship that is unparalleled in its interventions at the theoretical, conceptual, and methodological levels." —Percy Hintzen, University of California, Berkeley

(Percy Hintzen, University of California, Berkeley)

"Opens the way for a still emergent field, emergent in its attention to how global histories and processes figure in geographic regions and subjects beyond the Cold War configuration of regional political alliances." —Paulla Ebron, Stanford University

(Paulla Ebron, Stanford University)

"The volume as a whole reflects a courageous effort: it goes beyond empirical specifics of the African diaspora to provide an interim report on intellectual work crossing the boundaries of national units and disciplinary boxes." —Journal of African History, Vol. 52.2, 2011

(Journal of African History 2011-01-00)

"The African Diaspora and the Disciplines... ranks as an excellent contribution to the growing field [of African diaspora studies].... [I]t is a cogent, suggestive work that will energize scholars across the disciplines to further mine this rich vein." —postcolonialnetworks.com

(postcolonialnetworks.com)

"The African Diaspora and the Disciplines is a cutting-edge publication that is long overdue. Apart from general readers, it can be recommended for upper-level African diaspora courses and graduate theory and methods courses. Its discussion of genetic diasporas in particular will serve as a scientific and biological bridge linking New World black diasporic ideation about notions of a "homeland" and the environs where these homes sprouted prior to the Middle Passage." —Africa Today
