Current Writing: Text and Reception in Southern Africa, published bi-annually by Routledge, covers recent writing and re-publications in South Africa as well as topical southern African issues; it presents literary-cultural debate from a southern African perspective. Current Writing: Text and Reception in Southern Africa is now the official journal of SAACLALS (the Southern African Association for Commonwealth Literature and Languages). Current Writing also presents the opportunity for contributors to continue and extend comparative connections between southern Africa - the initial focus of text and reception in Current Writing - and writing from other parts of Africa and the Commonwealth. With the concept of postcolonial literature/s currently held in debate with the older term Commonwealth Literature, and given South Africa's peculiar challenge - Africa in the West or the West in Africa? - to older delineations of 'African literature', the association between SAACLALS and Current Writing promises fruitful developments in textual studies.
