This is a call for materials for a contemporary Reader on African sexualities in preparation by
Editor: Prof. Sylvia Tamale who is the outgoing dean of the Faculty of Law - Makerere University, as well as the Director of the Law, Gender and Sexuality Research Project also at the faculty.
This seminal work will be a compilation of diverse populist and academic pieces that either engage with or inform sexualities enacted all over the African continent. We are interested in collecting a range of materials including (but not limited to) essays, fiction, poetry, web blogs, art, crafts, photographs, film, documentaries, diaries, music, theoretical discussions, empirical papers, academic publications etc, that address and inform African sexualities. The editor will obtain copyright permission where necessary. Although the main language of the reader will be English, relevant materials published in French, Portugese, Spanish, Arabic and any African tongue will be translated for inclusion. This reader aims to be as inclusive of all of Africa as possible. The call will be active for ten months.
