CALL FOR PAPERS - AFRO-ÁSIA

Founded in 1965, Afro-Ásia is a semi-annual publication of the Center of Afro-Oriental Studies (CEAO) of the Federal University of Bahia (Salvador, Brazil). It publishes articles on issues related to African and Asian populations and their descendants in Brazil and elsewhere. Afro-Ásia is one of the few Brazilian publications fully dedicated to African and Afro-Brazilian studies,
in a country and state (Bahia) where Africa's vital role in history and culture is widely known. The work published in Afro-Ásia has promoted academic debate on such issues as the history of slavery, racial relations or the complex processes of identity construction, and has also been crucial in informing a progressive socio-political agenda in the fight against ethnic and racial
inequality in Brazil. Beginning in 2005, the printed edition of the journal will be supplemented by an electronic version.

Editors: Luis Nicolau Parés, Renato da Silveira e Valdemir Zamparoni .
