More about the two featured journals
Inkanyiso – Journal of African Thought deliberately embraces epistemologies of the Global South as part and parcel of its geo-politics of knowledge vis-à-vis the problematic epistemologies of the Global North. This posture finds concrete expression in the contributions received. The journal takes seriously the indigenous epistemologies, ontologies, as well as historical and socio-economic realities of its immediate communities. Visit inkanyisojournal.org to find out more about the journal and the types of articles published by this open-access scholarly journal.
New Contree serves as a scholarly voice and platform for instilling and disseminating specific and comparative local and regional history debate in Africa and its value in broader (transnational contexts). New Contree’s intellectual repertoire compliments a rigorous theoretically reflexive social history in which inclusivity in reconstructing the past from ‘below’ (ordinary people’s voice and acknowledging smaller community activities) and also from ‘above’ (be informed on related actions, for example, central authority, government and national figures) matters.
