The Chimurenga Chronic
A pan African gazette - in print quarterly and online
"It is a publication borne out of an urgent need to write our world differently, to begin asking new questions, or even the old ones anew.
When will the new emerge – and if it is already here, how do we decipher it ? In which ways do people live their lives with joy and creativity and beauty, sometimes amid suffering and violence, and sometimes perpendicular to it ? How do people fashion routines and make sense of the world in the face of the temporariness or volatility that defines so many of the arrangements of social existence here ?
These questions loom over a contemporary Africa. Yet most knowledge produced on the continent remains heavily reliant on simplistic and rigid categories unable to capture the complexities that inflect so much of contemporary quotidian life here."
