Matatu is a peer-reviewed journal on African literary and cultural studies open to interdisciplinary dialogue with fields such as the social sciences, cultural anthropology, and history.

Matatu is animated by a lively interest in African and Afrodiasporic literatures and cultures that moves beyond well-worn notions of “cultural authenticity” and “national liberation” towards critical explorations 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 overcoming notions of absolute cultural, ethnic, or religious alterity, and to providing a forum for transcultural discussions and exchanges.

Matatu was published as book series until the end of 2015. All back volumes are still available in print.

Peer Review Policy: All articles published in Matatu undergo a double-anonymous external peer review process. This includes articles published in special issues.
