Left Coast Press announces that it will publish a new journal in 2012:

Journal of African Diaspora Archaeology and Heritage

founded and edited by our own Prof. Christopher C. Fennell!

The Journal of African Diaspora Archaeology and Heritage provides a focal point for peer-reviewed publications in interdisciplinary studies in archaeology, history, material culture, and heritage dynamics concerning African descendant populations and cultures across the globe.  The Journal invites articles on broad topics, including the historical processes of culture, economics, gender, power, and racialization operating within and upon African descendant communities.  We seek to engage scholarly, professional, and community perspectives on the social dynamics and historical legacies of African descendant cultures and communities worldwide.  The Journal publishes research articles and essays that review developments in these interdisciplinary fields.
