Call for Proposals: Critical/Feminist African Development Project

We invite proposals for a new project on development policies and initiatives of governments and policy institutions across Africa in the immediate post-independence period. The project, Post-Colonialisms Today, will apply feminist and heterodox approaches to economics to recover the key policies that sought to address the material, cultural, and spiritual limitations imposed by colonial regimes, and identify ideas that can be usefully adapted to on-going development challenges in Africa.

We welcome proposals from African scholars and activist intellectuals to join this project. Up to USD 5000 will be offered to support the fulfillment of each accepted proposal. In addition to considerations of merit and relevance, proposals must show a feminist as well as heterodox approach to analysis of social and economic development. For more info, please visit the project site (, or see the full Call for Proposals and concept note.

Proposal abstracts of approximately 500 words must be sent no later than 26 January 2018 to: Please include your full name, affiliation, and contact information. Selected proposals will be announced in February 2018.
