This website is dedicated to studies in African Literature and
Culture, and to propagating African literary thought and aesthetics.
For years, the IRCALC initiative on African studies has given
publishing impetus for the emergence of scholarly literary journals on
African literary and cultural expressions.
Our Mission and Purpose
To further the imaginative approach to Africa's leadership and development
concerns through providing an authentic network for scholarly discourse on
Africa's literatures and cultures, not excluding, indeed, other writings of
the black Diaspora that lend meaning and support to the African vision.
