  • Index of Contributors

About the JournalJournal of Cultural Studies is an international journal which explores critical perceptions of culture from within Africa, and engages other cultures and civilizations in varying modes of global discourses that could significantly impact upon the African imagination and experience. Its dimensions of interest include oral and written literatures, languages, performance arts, the media, high and popular culture, and such humanistic and social disciplines and issues that are of some specific or general cultural interest. Established in 1999 by the African Cultural Institute, Lagos, as an independent tool for research development in Africa, its current focus significantly transcends the limits of an immediate African ideology. Necessarily, it seeks to interact with various local and global cultures, and to position itself to capture emergent cultural trends and challenges. Its positioning, essentially, aims to understand genuinely humanistic, multicultural, multidisciplinary and  post-modernist engagements and tempers in terms of structures, scopes, contents, forms and strategies.
