Monsoon: Journal of the Indian Ocean Rim, is an interdisciplinary journal published by The Africa Institute in collaboration with Duke University Press.

The journal publishes original, cutting-edge research essays as well as special thematic issues that provide analysis of cultural, historical, and political circumstances that have shaped and currently affect, the littoral societies of the Indian Ocean. Monsoon aims to raise the profile of Indian Ocean studies, bringing research on the societies, arts, and cultures of the basin to a wide audience. It also fills a glaring gap in the extant literature on the Indian Ocean rim, which has sidelined African and Gulf societies falling within the region. With an eye cast toward expanding knowledge on the connections forged across diverse environments and cultures, the journal is a critical resource among, and in conversation with, other journals on oceanic and global studies.

Monsoon is co-edited by Rogaia Mustafa Abusharaf, Professor of Anthropology, at Georgetown University in Qatar, and Jeremy Prestholdt, Professor of History, University of California, San Diego. To see the full masthead, please visit the journals page on Duke University Press website.
