Swahili Studies

This guide highlights resources which are useful for Swahili language, literature and cultural studies.

Welcome to the Library Guide for Swahili Studies!

I hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for your research in Swahili studies. I have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as high quality, freely available web resources. This guide is a collaborative work-in-progress, developed with the suggestions and feedback from students and faculty involved in Swahili studies.

Feel free to contact me by email or by telephone if you have a question about library services or you need some help finding resources. I am also available by appointment to assist students and faculty with research related to Swahili studies.

Faculty are invited to contact me to schedule research workshops for classes or to suggest specific items for purchase that address curriculum, teaching, or research needs.

Cordially,
