Bibliography on Social Research on Darfur
Munzoul Assal and a small group of Sudanese collaborators have compiled the most extensive bibliography of social science research on Darfur available to date. An Annotated Bibliography of Social Research on Darfur is the outcome of cooperation between the University of Bergen and the researchers at the University of Khartoum. This is an essential resource for any scholar seeking to gain an understanding of the crisis in Darfur.
Although it contains several hundred entries, classified according to ethnicity, anthropology and sociology, history, environment and geography, agriculture and economics, and politics and public administration, the bibliography is much shorter than the comparable volume on Southern Sudan, compiled by the Bergen-based scholar Terje Tvedt. This shows that although there is a considerable social science literature in English on Darfur (and a larger literature in Arabic), the region is still relatively neglected.
Unfortunately the bibliography is not available (or searchable) online–but Prof. Munzoul assures me that he is open to offers for converting the book in this way, so as to make it more accessible and also updateable.
