Critical Africana Studies: African, African American, and Caribbean Interdisciplinary and Intersectional Studies is designed to accommodate the unprecedented growth of critical, interdisciplinary, and intersectional scholarship within the emerging field of Africana Studies. Epistemological and methodological advances in Africana Studies, as well as historical and cultural changes, over the last fifty years have led to an increased interest in continental and diasporan African history, culture, thought, and struggles. The Critical Africana Studies book series will directly respond to the heightened demand for monographs and edited volumes that innovatively explore Africa and its
diaspora employing cutting-edge critical, interdisciplinary, and intersectional theory and methods. Books in this series will decidedly move beyond one-dimensional and monodisciplinary theories and methods and utilize mixed methodologies and multiple epistemologies—from those arising from “traditional” single-subject focused disciplines like history, philosophy, sociology, psychology and political science, to those emanating from newly established or emerging multidisciplinary fields such as Women’s Studies, Sexuality Studies, Cultural Studies, Postcolonial Studies, and Postmodern Studies. Ultimately, then, it will be the unrepentant and insurgent interdisciplinarity and intersectionality of the books in this series that distinguish it from other African Studies, African American Studies, or Caribbean Studies book series.
