1. Date: 11 Dec 1998 From: Misty Bastian, Harvard U. <firstname.lastname@example.org> I would like to add the names of three distinguished Nigerian women scholars who publish historical materials: Professor Felicia Ekejiuba of the University of Nigeria--Nsukka, who has worked on issues relating to powerful women traders among riverine Igbo communities; Nina Emma Mba, currently resident in the UK (I believe), whose 1982 work _Nigerian Women Mobilized_ is a very important monograph on Nigerian women's history; and V. I. Ekpo, who is locally publishing on the 1929 "Women's War" in southeastern Nigeria, largely from the perspective of Ibibio women. Clearly there are many more women historians from Nigeria--and not only from the southeastern section of the country. I'll trust my fellow Nigerian and Nigerianist colleagues to enlighten us further on their work. 2. Date: 11 Dec 1998 From: Mette Shayne <email@example.com> Another historian is Penda M'Bow at Universite de Dakar who has written on the history of Muslims in Senegal. 3. Date: 13 Dec 98 From: Donald Osborn <firstname.lastname@example.org> Another Malian woman historian is Bintou Sanankoua. I'm only aware of two of her publications, one of which deals with what is now central Mali during the 19th century: _La chute de Modibo Keita_ (Editions Chaka, Paris, 1990) _Un Empire peul au XIXe siecle: La Diina du Maasina_ (Karthala/ACCT, Paris, 1990) [editor's note: a third title is: _L'enseignement islamique au Mali_ / sous la direction de Bintou Sanankoua et Louis Brenner. Bamako, Mali : Jamana ; London : SOAS [distributor], 1991. 151 p.--P.L.]
