The guiding questions for this edition of are as follows: How do people make sense of new technologies and scientific practices as they impinge on their lives, and their understandings of the world in which they live? In what ways are technologies from “elsewhere” – the West, the global North – hybridised and transformed as they travel to African contexts and the continents different regional and national traditions? In what ways do new technologies and scientific practices and languages provide materials for reworking notions of culture, identity and the self in particular, local African contexts?

Correctly formatted submissions (see http://www.africanstudies.uct.ac.za/postamble/vol3-1/submissions.pdf) should be addressed to the Managing Editor and either posted or emailed directly to postamble by no later than 31 December 2007.
