Matatu

Journal for African Culture and Society

Matatu is a peer-reviewed journal on African literatures and societies dedicated to interdisciplinary dialogue between literary and cultural studies, historiography, the social sciences and cultural anthropology.
Matatu is animated by a lively interest in African culture and literature (including the Afro-Caribbean) that moves beyond worn-out clichés of “cultural authenticity” and “national liberation” towards critical exploration of African modernities. The East African public transport vehicle from which Matatu takes its name is both a component and a symbol of these modernities: based on “Western” (these days usually "Asian") technology, it is a vigorously African institution; it is usually regarded with some anxiety by those travelling in it, but is often enough the only means of transport available; it creates temporary communicative communities and provides a transient site for the exchange of news, storytelling, and political debate.
Matatu is firmly committed to supporting democratic change in Africa, to providing a forum for interchanges between African and European critical debates, to overcoming notions of absolute cultural, ethnic, or religious alterity, and to promoting transnational discussion on the future of African societies in a wider world.
Matatu was published as book series until the end of 2015. All back volumes are still available in print.

Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd'hui

A Bilingual Review / Revue Bilingue

A refereed bilingual journal, Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd’hui (SBT/A) has established itself as one of the leading international journals in the dynamic field of Beckett studies. A guiding principle of the journal is its openness to diverse disciplinary domains, theoretical perspectives, and discourse styles of scholars writing on Beckett. Bilingual since its inception, it aims to foster dialogue across languages, cultures, and disciplines.
The SBT/A accepts submissions of individual articles in English and French at any moment, and publishes these on a regular basis twice a year after peer-reviewing. Proposals for thematic issues, whether based on conferences or not, are welcome; articles in these dossiers are peer-reviewed according to the same procedure as individual articles. Free space (for accepted individual articles that have been accepted for publication) is available in each issue.
The Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd’hui was published as book series until end of 2015. All back volumes are still available in print.

Bilingue depuis sa fondation, la revue cherche à encourager le dialogue entre les langues, les cultures et les disciplines différentes. La revue accueille des propositions en anglais et en français provenant de tous les coins du monde, pourvu que celles-ci, en s’inscrivant dans la liste déjà longue des études sur Beckett, contribuent à apporter une compréhension nouvelle de cette œuvre, tout en répondant aux critères requis de lisibilité et de sérieux scientifique. Les propositions sont soumises au contrôle évaluatif par les pairs.
