Thematic focus of the Journal

The Journal publishes articles based on research in social sciences and humanities, with focus on research on Northeastern African topics (countries: Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia, Somaliland, Southern Sudan, Sudan). The disciplines covered by this Journal are especially social and cultural anthropology, history (including ethnohistory), cultural studies, heritage studies, archaeology, philology, linguistics, epigraphy, literature (including oral literature), political science and human geography. This can include papers discussing already known scholarly topics if they offer important new insights or contribute to an improvement of methodology. Also miscellaneous articles focusing on smaller observations of cultural phenomena or other data, which deserve to be known without needing a full article, are welcome, as book reviews and conference reports. The Journal publishes abstracts of ongoing research projects and welcomes anyone who wishes to make his/her research known using this forum.
