This distinguished journal seeks to publish scholarly articles on all aspects of Northeast African studies, including but not limited to works in the social sciences and humanities. We particularly welcome contributions that rethink established debates and paradigms in the field, that address issues with comparative implications for scholars working in other parts of the world, or that draw upon new or underutilized source materials and disciplinary methodologies.

We consider Northeast Africa to include the Nile Valley, the Red Sea, and the lands adjacent to both, and so invite articles on patterns and processes that characterize the region as a whole. We hope to make Northeast African Studies a “must-read” journal not only for other area specialists but also for those engaged in comparative and transnational studies.

We will actively encourage submissions from Africa-based researchers, as well as papers based on collaborative research by African and overseas scholars.
