The AEGIS-Brill Series publishes academic work drawn from the lively and expanding global community of scholars with interests in Africa and its diasporas, including an edited volume related to the theme of AEGIS’s biennial ECAS Conference. The Series began in 2005 and has published titles ranging from Is Violence Inevitable in Africa? (2005) to The Making of the African Road (2017) and African Futures (2022).
The AEGIS-Brill Series has been publishing since 2005. Books become openly available on this website 18 months after publication, and can be accessed via the links below. More recent publications can be purchased directly from the publisher’s website.
The AEGIS-Brill Series provides a platform for books within the humanities and social sciences which bring new approaches or innovative perspectives to research on African contexts. Both single-authored works and edited collections are considered for publication.
