African Cities Reader

About

The African Cities Reader is a biennial publication that brings together contributors from across Africa and the world to challenge the prevailing depiction of urban life on the continent and redefine cityness, Africa-style. It is a joint creation of Chimurenga and the African Centre for Cities at the University of Cape Town.


Issues

The Reader seeks to embody and reflect the rich pluralism, cosmopolitanism and diversity of emergent urbanisms across Africa. Each issue features  multiple genres (literature, philosophy, faction, reportage, ethnographic narrative, etc), forms of representation (text, image, sound and possibly performance), and points of view. Themes include ‘Pan African Practices‘, ‘Mobilities and Fixtures’, and ‘Land, Property & Value‘ which engages the unholy trinity of land, property and value – the life force of cities everywhere.
