The University of Wisconsin Press has announced the launch of a new book series, Women and Gender in Africa, edited by Jacqueline-Bethel Mougoué, associate professor of African Cultural Studies and History at UW, and Aili Mari Tripp, Vilas Research Professor of Political Science at UW. 

Women and Gender in Africa seeks to publish innovative book-length works, based on original research, primarily in the areas of history, politics, and cultural studies. The publication welcomes submissions that address questions and debates of broad theoretical, empirical, and methodological significance of interest to a wide readership. The publication encourages submissions that demonstrate the comparative implications of women’s experiences across and beyond the African continent. Topics such as women and religion, sexuality, LGBTQI+ concerns, human rights, migration, health, the family, the environment, law, conflict resolution, race and ethnicity, women’s movements and feminism, and globalization are of utmost interest. 

Manuscripts will be selected based on the significance of the topic, quality of scholarship, clarity and style of presentation, list balance, and marketability.
