Journal Reviews

Intute selects JENdA as the best educational Web resource

"The journal, despite the belligerent tone that characterises many of its articles (2001-04), especially the editorial comments, maintains a high standard of critical rigour on its chosen topics. The site, with its supply of links to other sites on African topics, is therefore a useful resource for researchers on African culture and cultural theory generally."

Jenda wins 2002 ICAAP award for excellence in Electronic Publication JENDA Wins 2002 ICAAP Award for Excellence in Electronic Publication

JENdA: A Journal of Culture and African Women Studies has been selected as a Scout Report by the Internet Scout Project at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in their March 3, 2001 issue

"Published by Africa Resource Center and directed by an all-African women team of co-editors, this new ejournal represents in part an effort to occupy and redefine the space of African Women's studies, a space initially defined by white female scholars. Judging by the inaugural issue, Jenda holds great promise, offering a large selection of interesting and engaging essays and other content, much more than comparable print or online journals. In addition, the left-hand side of the journal page contains a fairly deep Africa-focused bibliography, organized by topic. The main Africa Resource Center site offers a wealth of Africa resources, including several additional ejournals, databases, bibliographies, an online art gallery, and more." -- Michael de Nie, Director of Scout Report, University of Wisconsin-Madison (March 3, 2001).
