Abstract:This Special Issue explores continuities and discontinuities in activist print cultures in Africa and the African diaspora. Where bookshops and independent publishers such as New Beacon and Bogle L'Ouverture in London, Présence Africaine in Paris or Third World Press in Chicago once flourished as hubs for political and intellectual thought, the digital mediascape now provides unprecedented space and means for raising oppositional voices and forming complex communities of writers and readers. The issue contains amongst others a survey of fourteen new African publishers and original poetry and fiction from Mervyn Morris, Efemia Chela, Nick Makoha, Ladan Osman, Daouda Ndiaye, Ola Nwaozuzu-Ekechukwu, Dorothea Smartt and Felwine Sarr.
