Title: Native Tongues: The African Hip-Hop Reader
Publisher: African World Press
We invite proposals from scholars and advanced graduate students to be contributors for a book project of compiled critical and new writings on rap and hip-hop in Africa. Much scholarship has been produced on hip-hop, but little attention has been paid to this burgeoning and vibrant culture on the African continent– this will be the focus of this volume.
Chapter proposals from scholars of any discipline focusing on any region and/or country of Africa will be considered. Proposals can also take a transnational approach but must focus on Africans in diaspora (e.g. Senegalese in France). Proposals on the North Africa, Francophone, and Lusophone Africa are particularly sought. Interviews, creative writing, and photographs, are also welcome.
Scholars interested in being a contributor are invited to submit a proposal including a CV and a 400-500 word abstract detailing the intended subject by May 20, 2009. Previously published material will be considered for this project, but priority will be given to unpublished essays. Editors will inform applicants whether their proposal has been accepted by June 10, 2009. Authors of accepted proposals should submit their final essays, of between 5,000-10,000 (words including notes), by September 1, 2009.
Please submit your abstracts electronically in MS Word compatible format to Khalil Saucier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
