        A New Cartography of Africa (March 2015)

        ABSTRACT

        African publishing houses Chimurenga (South Africa) and Kwani? (Kenya) finalized a joint project that explored the links be- tween contemporary Africa, the maps we use to show it, and how these maps don’t always reflect what is actually happening on the ground for Africans. In this month’s “Voices from the South,” the founder and editor of Chimurenga, Ntone Edjabe, writes about the project, and the eight al- ternative maps that are being launched this month across Africa. He explores especially how the process of creating these “alternative cartographies” opened up the imaginations of the cartographers to highlight Africa’s own evolving narratives.
