Global African Voices

Global African Voices publishes the wealth and richness of literature by African authors and authors of African descent in English translation. The series focuses primarily on translations of new works, but seeks to reissue longstanding classics that are currently out-of-print or have yet to reach English-speaking readers. Novels, novellas, collections of plays, collections of short stories, collections of folktales, and contemplative essays are considered. Works for translation are selected for their broad appeal to English-speaking readers. They may include, but are not be limited to, works that deal with culture, social and political issues, human rights, ethnic conflict, health care, democratization, immigration, exile, the Diasporic experience, and other salient concerns of the global African community.Inquiries may be addressed to Dee Mortensen, Editorial Director, mortense@indiana.edu.
