Black Women’s History

Black Women's History series logo

Black Women’s History draws on the research and teaching of generations of scholars who have developed the distinctive theories and methods that have made Black women’s history a robust field. Works in this series reflect and build upon the archives, approaches, and themes elucidated by classic and cutting-edge scholarship to push the field in new directions. In a moment that demands a reckoning with the past and the tools historians use to recount it, the Black Women’s History series meets this challenge and transforms how historians and popular audiences understand the world today. 

To help develop works in progress on Black women’s history, we will hold an incubator once a year. Applicants will be able to apply to participate in a manuscript workshop and receive feedback from series editors and other interlocutors.
