Neither Here Nor There: Perspectives on Identity by the Young Eritrean and Ethiopian Diaspora in America

Update on the Book Project

Filed under: Uncategorized — Habesha Diaspora @ 10:30 am

For those of you who may not know, my sister and I created this blog centered around our latest book project. We collected submissions from Ethiopian and Eritrean Americans throughout the U.S. (and Canada) about what it means to be young and Ethiopian/Eritrean in the States (and Canada). We are currently wrapping up the review process and I must say, I am so incredibly moved by the quality of submissions. We have such a strong voice as a community and I can not wait until this book is finished so every one can hear what we have to say.

I am also excited at the amount of interest this project has garnered globally. Ethiopians and Eritreans in countries as far as England and Australia have asked to submit projects for this book as well. With an extension approval from our publishers now granted, it is likely that we will send out another call for submissions globally. Though this will likely add at least 6 months to a year to the publication, I am so excited because this means we will have a product that is so much more encompassing of the Ethiopian/Eritrean Diaspora.

I’m stoked. And you should be too. 🙂
