We are pleased to invite authors to submit their articles for the first issue of the Journal of African Languages and Literatures (JALaLit).

The Journal of African Languages and Literatures (JALaLit) is an electronic, international, peer-reviewed journal published by the Centro di Studi sull'Africa (Department of Asian, African, and Mediterranean Studies, University of Naples ''L'Orientale''). JALaLit publishes original research articles, fieldwork material, and discussion notes addressing the current trends in African linguistics and in modern and contemporary African literary studies. JALaLit is entirely open access and publishes one issue a year.

JALaLit welcomes original research articles, fieldwork material, and discussion notes. The journal is interested in scholarship that draws from a broad variety of theoretical approaches and methodologies.

African linguistics: data-driven research contributions related to any aspect of African languages and linguistics. A special focus is given to description, documentation and analysis of undocumented and under-described languages.

African literatures: studies on modern and contemporary literatures in African languages (also in comparison to other literatures) with a special focus on texts (both in oral or written form).
Proposals are considered all year-round. In order to be considered for the 2020 issue of JALaLit, please send your proposal by the 15th of October, 2019.

All submissions are to be sent to the Editorial team's email address jalalitunior.it.
