African Gender Scholarship

Concepts, Methodologies and Paradigms

by Bibi Bakare-Yusuf, Signe Arnfred

Codesria’s commitment to ‘engender’ the social sciences in Africa dates back some time; and its research has contributed to the distinctive achievement of African feminism to draw from, and rethink concepts and paradigms of mainstream feminist scholarship. This new gender series aims to take forward that agenda, to keep alive efforts to fully integrate the dimension of gender into African social science research and to provide a platform for new work.

This first title in the series brings together the work from leading names in gender studies in Africa. The papers tackle subjects such as the merits and demerits of Eurocentricism, African epistemologies and cultures, colonial legacies, postcolonial realities, and other challenges in articulating African feminism and gender research.
