In the current academic climate there is an ongoing repositioning of media and cultural studies outside the Anglo-American axis. The peer-reviewed Journal of African Media Studies contributes to this repositioning by providing a forum for debate on the historical and contemporary aspects of media and communication in Africa.
Aims and Scope: The Journal of African Media Studies (JAMS) is an interdisciplinary journal that provides a forum for debate on the historical and contemporary aspects of media and communication in Africa. It hereby aims to contribute to the on-going re-positioning of media and cultural studies outside the Anglo-American axis. JAMS interprets media in a broad sense, incorporating not only formal media such as radio, television, print, internet and mobile telephony but also considers articles on ‘informal’, ‘small’ or ‘indigenous’ media such as music, jokes and theatre. All articles are double-blind peer-reviewed in order to maintain the highest standards of scholastic integrity.
