Jenda: A Journal of Culture and African Women Studies, a peer reviewed ejournal devoted to the promotion of the research and scholarship of African women, documents and responds to debates on women's history and studies in African social, cultural, political, and economic systems. It creates a forum for African women scholars, analysts and activists to participate on an equal footing with their contemporaries worldwide in debates, exchanges of ideas, and the creation and documentation of knowledge.


Scout Report selects JENdA Journal

Scout Report for Jenda: A Journal of Culture and African Women StudiesJENdA: A Journal of Culture and African Women Studies has been selected as a Scout Report by the Internet Scout Project at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in their March 3, 2001 issue.

Published by Africa Resource Center and directed by an all-African women team of co-editors, this new ejournal represents in part an effort to occupy and redefine the space of African Women's studies, a space initially defined by white female scholars. The journal also aims to "create a global forum for African women scholars, analysts and activists to participate on an equal footing with their contemporaries worldwide in debates, exchanges of ideas, and the creation and documentation of knowledge." In pursuit of both goals it will publish original essays, reprints, commentary, exhibition, reviews, interviews, and related writings. Judging by the inaugural issue, Jenda holds great promise, offering a large selection of interesting and engaging essays and other content, much more than comparable print or online journals. In addition, the left-hand side of the journal page contains a fairly deep Africa-focused bibliography, organized by topic. The main Africa Resource Center site offers a wealth of Africa resources, including several additional ejournals, databases, bibliographies, an online art gallery, and more.
