African Humanities Review: A Multi-disciplinary Journal focuses on Africa and receives articles that critically explore aspects of human endeavour from both quantitative and qualitative methodologies. The journal embraces an array of disciplines in the humanities including history, literature, language, linguistics, anthropology, religion, philosophy, sociology, communication, economics etc. In striving for a holistic understanding of Africa, the AHR encourages articles with interdisciplinary perspectives. For African to emerge, a comprehensive study of Africa is necessary.
Africa has been constantly represented with non-African perspectives that are criticized by African scholars for not representing the continent as it should be. The AHR offers researchers in Africa and others working on Africa a forum to disseminate knowledge generated in a bid to improve on the understanding of the continent. With its many peoples, religions, geographies, languages, and cultures, there is an unquestionable need for a greater search for understanding and providing answers to moot questions which have hampered the proper development of the continent. Critical knowledge production and dissemination is therefore not only a need but a must for the emergence of the continent. For a people who need to have a say in whom they think they are and how they think they should be perceived, the AHR presents a rare forum for the expression of such knowledge.
Although this maiden edition has focused on variegated peer-reviewed papers, eventually the journal would offer occasional special issues on topical themes and research monographs. The journal is published bi-annually in January and July. Papers are received throughout the year.
