About the Journal

The Centre for Advanced Studies of African Society (CASAS) was established in 1997 by its founding director, professor Kwesi Kwaa Prah, and incorporated to the University of the Western Cape (UWC) in 2018 within the University’s Department of Linguistics, Arts and Humanities Faculty. One of the mouthpieces of CASAS has been since 2002 its journal called Tinabantu – Journal of African National Affairs, serving as an intellectual expression platform for Africa and its diaspora.

In the planning of the CASAS activities for the year 2023, the Scientific Advisory Board approved the re-launch of the journal that has been dormant since 2012 with three slight changes. The first change is on the identity of the journal. It is now Tinabantu – Journal of Advanced Studies of African Society (T-JASAS). The second change is that the journal is now an open access journal with a very limited number of printed copies. The third change is that Tinabantu is now a publish-as-you-go journal, meaning once a manuscript has been fully accepted for publication, it will be immediately type-set and published online before its final inclusion in the volume issue.
