We are (doubly) pleased to announce that two of our books have received Herskovits Awards! The Masons of Djenne by Trevor H. J. Marchand and Women and Islamic Revival in a West African Town by Adeline Masquelier were both named winners at the African Studies Association's annual meeting, which was held earlier this month.
The Herskovits Award is presented annually for the best scholarly work on Africa published in English in the previous year and distributed in the U.S. With these recent wins, a total of eight IU Press books have now received Herskovits Awards. Congratulations to our authors!
