Adam Matthew Digital’s Africa and the New Imperialism: European Borders on the African Continent, 1870‐1914, contains more than 1,700 individual archival materials sourced from some of the most renowned academic institutions across the globe. There are materials that go beyond the typical government documents and correspondence to highlight nontraditional voices like women, rulers of Africa, and various representations of African culture; however, all of them are sourced from non-African institutions. Contextualizing secondary materials like in-depth scholarly essays, a region guide, and an interactive map will provide pedagogical opportunities, while facilitating student learning, and would prove useful for disciplines related to history, political science, border studies, ethnic and gender studies, and African studies. Highlights of the collection include the Joseph Chamberlain collection, papers of journalist and colonial commentator Flora Shaw, the papers of Henry Shelton Sanford, correspondence from Roger Casement and his Casement Report, and letters from African chiefs and emirs that are included in their original format as well as with translations.
