Welcome to Indilinga: African Journal of Indigenous Knowledge Systems (IAJIKS).
Indilinga is an independent and fully accredited publication.
The name Indilinga: stands for the "circular orientation" of indigenous African
communities which is exhibited in their material culture and behaviour. The
journal has been motivated by the need for a dependable expression for
critical and analytical writing on issues related to production,
dissemination and recognition of Indigenous Knowledge Systems. IAJIKS
represents a variety of cross disciplinary interests in ethno-methodology
and in qualitative methods. Debates on methodology, epistemology, ethics,
gender, education, science and technology, arts, food systems and
social-cultural issues are invited.
The aim and thrust of IAJIKS is to bring together scholars and thinkers to
promote, analyse, critique and preserve Indigenous Knowledge Systems (IKS).
The Journal is devoted to the promotion of the research and scholarship of
IKS. With the increasing enthusiasm of African Renaissance, it could not be
long before attention is turned to IKS to contribute of development of
Africa and the world.It is for this reason that the journal is founded as an
international academic forum to exchange ideas and theories surrounding IKS.
It is part of a research network entitled Productive Learning Cultures. The
network is a research co-operation between Southern African Universities and
the University of Bergen (Norway).
With the journal a forum is created for African scholars, analysts and
activists in IKS to participate on an equal footing with their
contemporaries world-wide in debates, exchange of ideas and the creation and
documentation of knowledge.
