Facebook ProfileThe University of Illinois Press is pleased to announce our new series, Black Internationalism, edited by Keisha N. Blain and Dr. Quito Swan. Dawn Durante, a senior acquisition editor at the University of Illinois Press, is the acquiring editor.

This series seeks to publish significant scholarship in the field of Black Internationalism. Moving beyond a nation-state centered level of analysis, books in this series will grapple with the international dimensions of the Black freedom struggle. They will provide historical and interdisciplinary perspectives on how people of African descent articulated global visions of freedom and forged transnational collaborations and solidarities with the Global South. The series will reflect the field’s remarkable growth in the areas of culture, geography, and methodology. Intersectional in nature, the series will collectively interrogate how race and ethnicity intersect with categories such as religion, gender, sexuality, class, and nationality. The series editors welcome projects that explore the diverse ways people of African descent transcended racial, geographic, and cultural lines in historical and contemporary contexts.
