About the Journal
Northeast African Studies (NEAS) is a biannual interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal that publishes high-quality original research in the social sciences and the humanities on the Horn of Africa and its neighbors. The region covers primarily Ethiopia, Eritrea, Sudan, South Sudan, Djibouti, and Somalia/Somaliland. We welcome submissions from a range of academic disciplines including history, anthropology, political science, sociology, religion, environmental studies, literature, and the arts. NEAS editors seek contributions that rethink established debates and paradigms in the field, that address issues with comparative implications for scholars working in other parts of the world, or that draw on new source materials and disciplinary methodologies. We are highly interested in studies adopting transnational, transregional, and comparative perspectives as well as a regional approach to Northeast Africa that transcends the conventional borders of individual countries. Studies that explore the region’s broader interactions with the Red Sea and Indian Ocean areas, the adjacent Arabian Peninsula, relevant Trans-Saharan connections, or that converse with global history approaches are particularly welcome. NEAS also publishes scholarly reviews of current books in the field. Periodically, the editors commission guest-editors or solicit proposals for special issues on specific themes.
