Journal of the International African Institute offers complimentary access to the Editor’s selection of key content from eight decades of publication

Africa has proudly been publishing leading research in African cultures and society since 1928. To celebrate the publication of the archive we are delighted to offer complimentary access to the Editor’s selection of key content from eight decades of publication. 

The Journal of the International African Institute

 Africa is the premier journal devoted to the study of African societies and culture. Editorial policy encourages an interdisciplinary approach, involving humanities, social sciences, and environmental sciences. Africa aims to give increased attention to African production of knowledge, highlighting the work of local African thinkers and writers, emerging social and cultural trends ‘on the ground’, and links between local and national levels of society. At the same time, it maintains its commitment to the theoretically informed analysis of the realities of Africa’s own cultural categories. Each issue contains six or seven major articles, arranged thematically, extensive review essays and substantial book reviews. Special issues are published annually.

There is also a call for papers from African Scholars to submit to the Church History: Studies in Christianity and Culture.
