About English in Africa
English in Africa, founded in 1974, is a scholarly journal with a focus on original research on African writing in English.
The Editor invites contributions on all aspects of English writing and the English language in Africa, including oral traditions and other South African languages in translation. While English in Africa specialises in publishing previously unpublished or out-of-print literary materials, it also publishes scholarly articles, reviews and review articles, tributes, book reviews, and editorials. It places a particular emphasis on new or under-researched areas in African literature, and has tended to favour historical rather than theoretical modes of enquiry.
