First African Humanities Program title now with NISC

First African Humanities Program title now with NISC

The African Humanities Series is a partnership between the African Humanities Program (AHP) of the American Council of Learned Societies and academic publishers NISC (Pty) Ltd.

The Series covers topics in African histories, languages, literatures, philosophies, politics and cultures. Submissions are solicited from Fellows of the AHP, which is administered by the American Council of Learned Societies and financially supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. 

The first AHP title, Parading Respectability: The cultural and moral aesthetics of the Christmas Bands Movement in the Western Cape, South Africa is listed on the NISC website here

Book proposals are submitted to the AHP editorial board which manages the peer review process and selects manuscripts for publication by NISC. In some cases, the AHP board will commission a development editor to undertake substantive editing and to work with the author on refining the final manuscript. 

The African Humanities Series aims to publish works of the highest quality that will foreground the best research being done by emerging scholars in the five Carnegie designated countries being Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda. Books in the series are intended to speak to scholars in Africa as well as in other areas of the world.

Perhaps the most important change, in terms of bringing the Journal to a wider audience, has been its publishing in collaboration with the NISC (Pty) Ltd.
