Two articles by Amanda M. Maples were recently accepted for publication in peer-reviewed journals, both of which are forthcoming Fall 2018. The first is entitled “Unraveling Political and Historical Threads: Youth and Masquerade Mobility in Freetown” and will be published in Social Dynamics: A Journal of African Studies. The second, “Urban Roots and Rural Routes: Migrating Masquerades of Freetown and Beyond”, will be featured in Critical Interventions Journal of African Art History and Visual Culture. Both are part of Special Issues and feature her recent dissertation and field research on youth urban masquerading in Freetown and its migrations beyond the city and into rural Sierra Leone and the diaspora.
