Transition is a unique forum for fresh perspectives on global issues, literature and art, cultures and people, with an emphasis on Africa and the Diaspora. Founded in 1961 in Uganda by the late Rajat Neogy, Transition quickly established itself as a leading forum for intellectual debate. The current series carries on the original’s tough-minded, far-reaching criticism, both cultural and political. Transition is a publication of the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute at Harvard University, published three times annually by Indiana University Press.
