On the journal: ‘Stichproben – Vienna Journal of African Studies’ are published twice a year at the Department of African Studies, University of Vienna, Austria. The journal contributes to debates on recent and historical issues of African Studies, with a focus on both Africa and its diaspora. The contributions often cross the boundaries of individual disciplines. We provide a platform for interdisciplinary exchange among scholars of different backgrounds and origins. The Stichproben are particularly eager to support young scholars and students in their research and publication activities. Our journal is a medium to enhance the visibility of the discipline of African Studies.
