CFP: Eating and drinking in Africa before the 20th century
Call for Papers Date: 2011-10-31
Published on line since April 2010 (http://afriques.revues.org), Afriques. Débats, méthodes et terrains d’histoire is the only journal devoted to the history of Africa before the 20th century. For its fifth thematic issue, scheduled for late 2012, Afriques is calling for papers on: “Eating and drinking in Africa before the 20th century: Cuisines, exchanges, social constructions”. Ten years will, in 2012, have passed since the publication of Cuisine et société en Afrique: histoire, saveurs, savoir-faire (M. Chastanet, F.X. Fauvelle-Aymar and D. Juhé-Beaulaton, eds.), still one of the very few books devoted to this topic. It described the history of foods, dishes, drinks and commensality in Africa. The fifth issue of Afriques would like to update this description while focusing on the period before the 20th century, as is the journal’s wont.
The deadline for sending an abstract (approximately 800 words) for a proposed article is 31 October 2011. The full article is to reach us by 31 May 2012. The fifth issue of Afriques is slated for November 2012. Please send the abstract and contribution to Thomas Guindeuil (firstname.lastname@example.org).
