Administered by the Women’s Caucus of the African Studies Association, the Aidoo-Snyder Book Prize, now in its 18th year,  “seeks to acknowledge the excellence of contemporary scholarship being produced by women about African women.” The prize is awarded in honour of Ghanaian novelist, Ama Ata Aidoo, and American social scientist, Margaret Snyder.

Humus, first published in French by Gallimard in 2006, centers on the lives of women who were captured in Ghana, and the trajectory of their lives afterwards. Its English edition was published in 2020 by the University of Virginia Press.
