Our paper 'Chasing imaginary leopards: science, witchcraft and the politics of conservation' has finally been published in the Journal of Eastern African Studies, along with other papers in a special collection on 'Contemporary issues in Swahili ethnography'. It's more than two years since we presented a first version of the paper at the VIII European Swahili Workshop in Oxford (see our earlier post on 'Chasing imaginary leopards', which gives the abstract that we submitted). The workshop was organised by Iain Walker, and we're very grateful to him for all the effort he put into this and then finding a home for revised versions of the papers, ours included.
