New interdisciplinary journal on African and Black Diasporic Studies

Throughout her life, Harriet Tubman dedicated herself to fighting for freedom, equality, and justice, rising to international prominence, and becoming one of North America’s most well-known civil rights icons. 

Harriet Tubman’s legacy is one of resistance and hope. To raise awareness about Harriet Tubman’s courageous activism, the Harriet Tubman Institute for Research on Africa and its Diasporas was established as a hub for studies and documentation on Africa and its Diasporas.

The Harriet Tubman Institute (HTI) is a one-of-a-kind interdisciplinary research center dedicated to the study of pre-contact cultures and histories of Africa, histories of slavery, and colonialism. It focuses on the struggles in the current lives of African peoples and diasporic communities to achieve social justice and covers contemporary forms of exploitation.

ScienceOpen is pleased to welcome the Tubman Institute and their research into our discovery environment by dedicating a collection to the HTI Journal of African and Black Diasporic Studies/La revue des études africaines et de la diaspora noire, drawing on interdisciplinary insights from a variety of intellectual traditions and appealing to a diverse readership.

Getting to know the HTI Journal of African and Black Diasporic Studies 

The Journal of African and Black Diasporic Studies is a peer-reviewed, international, bilingual journal that publishes research that advances our understanding of Africans and African-descended people worldwide in English and French.

The journal’s goal is to foster collaboration and engagement both within and outside of the academy, and it welcomes contributions from both scholars and practitioners working on issues affecting Black communities.

The journal’s mission is to communicate significant, relevant, and critical thinking on the experiences of African and African-descended people throughout the Diaspora by identifying problems, sharing solutions, and novel ideas with the community, researchers, policymakers, and decision-makers.

The HTI Journal of African and Black Diasporic Studies is methodologically open, drawing on interdisciplinary insights focusing on, but not limited to, labor, mobility, expressive culture, and belief systems, oral traditions, politics, economics, social justice, gender and sexualities, critical scholarship on science, health and wellbeing, disability, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), and humanities, with a primary focus on African and African-descended people.

We are excited to be working with ScienceOpen. This collaboration enables us to reach a global audience, and more researchers and practitioners in the Global South will benefit as a result
