In a recent interview with Prof Lulu Shokane, the Editor-in-Chief of Inkanyiso – Journal of African Thought, she shared some valuable insights about the journal’s focus and scope and explains how the journal seeks to embrace 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. She also shares what types of articles that will be accepted for publication.

‘Inkanyiso’ (means light) was launched at the University of Zululand, South Africa, on the 30th November 2009. The beaded threads on the old front cover of the journal in 2009 are worn by expectant mothers of Nguni origin and symbolise fertility and reproductivity, which this journal aims to emulate by multiplying its output in the near future.
