African Identities will provide a critical forum for the examination of African and diasporic expressions, representations and identities. The aim of this journal is to open up various horizons in the field: to encourage the development of theory and practice in a wider spread of disciplinary approaches; to promote conceptual innovation and to provide a venue for the entry of new perspectives. The journal will focus on the myriad of ways in which cultural production creates zones of profound expressive possibilities by continually generating texts and contexts of reflexive import. With an emphasis on gender, class, nation, marginalisation, "otherness" and difference, the journal will explore how African identities, either by force of expediency or contingency, create layered terrains of (ex)change, decentre dominant meanings, paradigms and certainties. Important questions about the meanings of Africanness, "post-coloniality" and syncreticisms, for example, will provide conceptual frameworks within which to situate the critical analysis of African cultural production and axis of engagement with popular culture.
