Description: The Journal of African Cultural Studies is an international journal
providing a forum for perceptions of African culture from inside and outside
Africa, with a special commitment to African scholarship. It focuses on dimensions
of African culture including African literatures both oral and written, performance
arts, visual arts, music, the role of the media, the relationship between culture
and power, as well as issues within such fields as popular culture in Africa,
sociolinguistic topics of cultural interest, and culture and gender.
It has evolved from the journal African Languages and Cultures,
founded in 1988 in the Department of the Languages and Cultures of Africa
at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. Although the journal
no longer carries articles on African languages that are primarily linguistic
in character, it remains strongly interested in the languages of Africa as
channels for the expression of their culture. All views expressed are those
of the authors and are not necessarily those of the editors.
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
Terms Related to the Moving Wall
Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
