We are currently accepting research papers, book reviews, and commentaries for the inaugural issue of the Journal of Retracing Africa (JORA). JORA is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary African studies journal published by Eastern Kentucky University (EKU) Libraries in collaboration with African/African American Studies program at EKU and the Berkeley Electronic Press. It considers unpublished manuscripts that provide theoretically informed analysis on Africa's social, economic, cultural, and political transformation since the pre-colonial period. JORA's mission is to deconstruct misconceived, mistaken, and missing narratives on Africa and Africans, thus providing a holistic understanding and appreciation of the African experience. For further information about the journal, please see the attached flyer and/or visit JORA homepage: http://encompass.eku.edu/jora/.
