What are continents and how are they imagined?  Africa and Europe exist as
separate places because the people who inhabited them have had divergent
histories.  What about non-human beings on those landmasses?  Are they
European and African in the same way the human inhabitants are?  How as
humans do we distinguish between Africa, Europe, and their birds?

Nancy Jacobs received her B.A. from Calvin College in Grand Rapids,
Michigan.  She received an M.A. in African Studies from UCLA and a Ph.D. in
History from Indiana University.  She is currently working on a book project
titled Birders of a Feather: Stories of People, Birds, and Other People in
Africa.
