Women in African Studies Scholarly Publishing
Cassandra Rachel Veney, Tiyambe Zeleza
Africa World Press, 2001 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 170 pages
Examining the role gender plays in African Studies, as practised in Africa and the US, this book discusses the challenges and difficulties female scholars face in their efforts to produce and disseminate scholarly knowledge. Beginning with an analysis of the structural and institutional barriers that affect women's productivity, it then examines the impact of the growth of women's presses, the promotion of feminist scholarship, and the productive links formed across the Atlantic, providing insight into the politics of cross-cultural race and gender.

I love this book authored by Cassandra Rachael Veney and Tiyambe Zeleza. Its in- depth study is particularly interesting to me. I'll love to add further that African women should be given immense support in the area of training and grants in publishing.
