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 ongoing 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. JAMS welcomes articles that discuss the relation of different media and forms of communication to the broader social, economic, historical and political context in Africa. JAMS has a preference for empirical work that is well grounded in theoretical debates and academic literature, and encourages contributors to include images, photographs or other graphics. JAMS also has a book and film review section and is published three times a year.
