Essays in a variety of fields and time periods are welcomed, on themes that may include but are not limited to:

       African Economic History was founded in 1974 by the African Studies Program at the University of Wisconsin and has subsequently been associated with the Harriet Tubman Institute for Research on Africa and its Diasporas, York University. The journal publishes research on all aspects of Africa’s economic past, including its historiography, and focuses on recent economic change as well as colonial and pre-colonial themes. Its audience includes historians, economists, anthropologists, sociologists, political scientists, policymakers, and a range of other scholars interested in the African present and past.
