SHADD: Studies in the History of the African Diaspora – Documents, is a publication of the Harriet Tubman Institute for Research on the Global Migrations of African Peoples and the Canada Research Chair in African Diaspora History. The Series is named in honour of Mary Add Shadd (Cary), feminist and abolitionist editor of the Provincial Freeman (Windsor, Toronto, Chatham, Canada West), 1853-57. SHADD operates under the direction of an Editorial Collective at York University. The Editorial Advisory Board consists of members and associateds of the Harriet Tubman Institute. SHADD was founded in association with the York/UNESCO Nigerian Hinterland Project, which was supported by a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, under its Major Collaborative Research Initiatives Program.
SHADD publishes manuscripts in Arabic, French, Portuguese, English, Spanish and other languages relevant to the history of the African diaspora. Original documents may be submitted to the Editorial Collective for consideration. Documents must be digitized or accessible for digitization, and where permission to publish is required, such permission should be secured in writing. All citations will give full credit to the location of documents; there will be inventories of documents, as appropriate. Internet links to institutions will be included, indicating where additional materials may be found, as well as sources for documents included on the site. Hard copies of digitized documents will be deposited at selected repositories in Latin America, the Caribbean and West Africa, as determined by the decision of the Editorial Collective. Wherever appropriate annotations and introductions will be revised as new information is recovered or otherwise made available.
