The University of Illinois Press is pleased to announce that Hot Feet and Social Change: African Dance and Diaspora Communities edited by Kariamu Welsh, Esailama Diouf, and Yvonne Daniel with Prefaces by Danny Glover, Harry Belafonte, and James Counts Early has been selected as a grant recipient from the University of Illinois Press Fund for Anthropology.
This internal fund established in 2017 helps ensure the publication of diverse research in anthropology. The fund builds upon the generosity of Norm Whitten, professor emeritus of anthropology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a pioneer of ethnographic approaches to anthropological research in South America. Hot Feet and Social Change, which tell some of the thousands of stories lived and learned by people in the field of African dance, exemplifies the spirit of this fund.
