IntuteIntute selects JENdA as the best Educational Web Resource

"The journal, despite the belligerent tone that characterises many of its articles (2001-04), especially the editorial comments, maintains a high standard of critical rigour on its chosen topics. The site, with its supply of links to other sites on African topics, is therefore a useful resource for researchers on African culture and cultural theory generally."

Scout Report SelectionInternet Scout Report selects JENdA as a new promising journal for research and education, 2001

JENdA: A Journal of Culture and African Women Studies has been selected as a Scout Report by the Internet Scout Project at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in their March 2, 2001 issue.

"Published by Africa Resource Center and directed by an all-African women team of co-editors, this new ejournal represents in part an effort to occupy and redefine the space of African Women's studies, a space initially defined by white female scholars. Judging by the inaugural issue, Jenda holds great promise, offering a large selection of interesting and engaging essays and other content, much more than comparable print or online journals. In addition, the left-hand side of the journal page contains a fairly deep Africa-focused bibliography, organized by topic. The main Africa Resource Center site offers a wealth of Africa resources, including several additional ejournals, databases, bibliographies, an online art gallery, and more." -- Michael de Nie, Director of Scout Report, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
