Launch of Feminist Africa Journal

Dear friends and colleagues,

The African Gender Institute's Gender and Women's Studies Project
wishes to announce the launch of the first Africa-wide feminist elec-
tronic journal: "Feminist Africa".


The launch issue entitled "Intellectual Politics" explores Feminist
Perspectives on African Higher Education mapping its current features
and analysing the persistence of systemic gender inequality in the
African higher education landscape. Contributions document some of
the main institutional reform strategies that have been deployed to
address the persistence and, indeed, the reproduction of gender sub-
ordination in higher education, and subject the sector to a critical
feminist analysis. By making reference to concrete examples, the is-
sue also looks at why and how gender studies (as an intellectual
strategy) has developed in African contexts over the last two dec-
ades, and whether this has served the end of overcoming the patriar-
chal premises of universities or not. The issue goes on to deal with
the global context that affects gender-based intellectual activism in
terms of research, teaching and publishing.

Pay the e-journal a visit!
