Swahili Forum

Swahili Forum provides a unique platform for research articles on Swahili language, literature as well as on Swahili-speaking cultures and societies in Eastern Africa and the diaspora. As a peer-reviewed open-access journal, Swahili Forum has an unequalled status in international Swahili Studies. Reviews of current research literature and occasional interviews with outstanding Swahili-speaking authors and intellectuals add to the articles on offer.

Published since 1994, Swahili Forum seeks to combine a high standard of scholarly publication with an open-access policy that allows for transcontinental accessibility and broad academic reception. Based in Germany, a recently expanded team of Swahili scholars from Europe and Eastern Africa is working together in editing and publishing Swahili Forum. The editors are supported by an exquisite editorial board which consists of Swahili scholars and intellectuals of international renown.

All contributions go through an international peer-review process. Paper submissions are accepted in Swahili, English, French and German and should be formatted according to our stylesheet. The journal has neither article processing nor article submission charges. The deadline for submissions to be considered for the following volume is 15th July.
