  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - Celebrating 40 years of the Australasian review of
           African studies: A bibliography of articles
    • Abstract: Lyons, Tanya
      In April 1979 the first African Studies of Australia Newsletter was published by members of the African Studies Association of Australia (AFSAA), which had just formed in 1978 at its inaugural conference. Tom Spear from La Trobe University was the first editor of this newsletter. Reading back over these back issues of the newsletter, you will discover that AFSAA membership fees were a modest $4 or $2 for students. Importantly this first newsletter included a list of some of the courses that were available at the time in Australian universities on African themes. Compared to the more recent 2017 Audit of African Studies related topics in Australian and New Zealand Universities, we can see that not much has really changed since then in relation to university offerings on Africa - and that it remains only a scattering of topics available. On this particular issue see AFSAAP (2017) "An Audit of African Studies in Australia 2017: A Snapshot of Courses and Topics available in Australian and New Zealand Universities, in addition to names of researchers working on issues related to Africa", and also see Tanya Lyons (2017) "Trends in African Studies in Australia and New Zealand", a paper presented at the 2017 AFSAAP Conference, and now available from the AFSAAP Archives online.

  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - "There is really discrimination everywhere":
           Experiences and consequences of 'everyday racism' among the new black
           African diaspora in Australia
    • Abstract: Kwansah-Aidoo, Kwamena; Mapedzahama, Virginia
      In this article, we use Philomena Essed's (1988) concept of 'Everyday Racism' as a theoretical framework to introduce critical perspectives for understanding experiences of contemporary racism among the new African diaspora in Australia. The concept deals with the everyday manifestations and (re)production of systemic inequality based on race and/or assumptions around race, whether intended or unintended. Our findings expose the covert, subtle and contestable forms that racism takes in Australian society and the consequences it has for black Africans. By discussing participants' views and opinions about working and living as skilled black African migrants in Australia, this article explores how racism continues to be perpetuated in Australia, where most citizens profess a commitment to the democratic principles of justice, equality, tolerance and 'a fair go'. We conclude that, for our black African respondents who experience racism regularly in their daily lives, the consequences are real and painful, manifesting in recurring themes such as the burden of proof; the weight of history and historicity; the 'constriction of experience'; and a superfluous self-surveillance and self-interrogation.

  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - 'African-Australian' identity in the making: Analysing
           its imagery and explanatory power in view of young Africans in Australia
    • Abstract: Gebrekidan, Berihu
      This article explores the term 'African-Australian', commonly used to describe Australians of African descent as a single homogeneous group. Even though it has been used for a long time, there has been little research into whether this generic term can properly describe African migrants and/or what people of African descent say about it. This article explores young Africans' self-categorisation and self-identification in relation to the broader label 'African-Australian', against the backdrop of their ethnic or national backgrounds. A qualitative inquiry was adopted, focusing on personal accounts, narratives and the perceptions of participants. Findings suggest that while there is generalised use among participants of the label 'African- Australian', some participants reject it and prefer to self-identify using their respective ethno-national hyphenations, such as 'Ethiopian-Australian'. Nonetheless, the research shows that there is a new trend emerging towards embracing a globalised black African identity crafted out of essentialised attributions of 'Africanness' and/or 'blackness'.

  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - Africa 'Pretty underdone': 2017 Submissions to the
           DFAT white paper and senate inquiry
    • Abstract: Ware, Helen; Lucas, David
      Public discussion of Africa in Australia is hard to find. This paper is devoted to examining views on Africa as reflected in published submissions to the Federal Government. It focusses on two sets of 2017 submissions: to the Foreign Policy White Paper process and to the Senate Inquiry into Australia's Trade and Investment Relationships with the Countries of Africa. In 2015 Gai Brodtmann (Member for Canberra in the House of Representatives) represented the Opposition at the second Australia-Africa Dialogue held in Zambia. She concluded that the Dialogue highlighted the fact that, "apart from mining, the relationship between Australia and the nations of Africa is pretty underdone." Brodtmann's view reflected Recommendation 5.3 of the 1997 Report of Committee of Review of the Australian Overseas Aid Program: South Asia and Africa were of lower priority than Papua New Guinea, the Pacific Islands and East Asia (AusAID, 1997:14). In 1996 the Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade had produced a 164 page report on Australia's Relations with Southern Africa following some 73 submissions, and promoting 42 recommendations. Some of these were not implemented. For example, no. 26 that "Australia reaffirms its commitment to the target of 0.7 per cent of GNP for official development purposes". Another apparent non-starter, no 41, concerned the creation of a Centre for African Studies in Western Australia. A similar recommendation for an African Studies Centre, location unspecified, in 2011 was also ignored.

  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - A critique of colonial rule: A response to Bruce
           Gilley
    • Abstract: Klein, Martin A
      Bruce Gilley has done the Africanist community a favor. In defending colonial rule, he forces us to define what colonial rule was really like. The problem is that he gets his facts wrong. He is right about a few things. For example, African nationalists often did not have massive support, colonial rule ended the slave trade, and Africans participated in colonial rule. That participation was because colonial rule was weak and under-funded. That explains its reliance on African intermediaries and its brutality. The notion that colonial rule was based on universal values is contradicted by the harshness of the conquest and its treatment of dissent. It relied heavily on forced labor. Colonial rule was racist. Colonial rulers ignored famines, and actually did little for health and education. Gilley sees colonial rule as training for self-government, but in most of Africa, there was little training and reluctance until the very end to think about self-government. Gilley ends with a program for recolonization which is in the interest of neither the former colonizers or the colonized. Particularly absurd is the notion of reengaging Portugal, the worst of the colonial powers.

  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - Curbing inequality through decolonising knowledge
           production in higher education in South Africa
    • Abstract: Tshimpaka, Leon Mwamba
      In South Africa, the question of whether a Western education system can lead to the achievement of equality among citizens is quite a problematic one. Thus, the question that has since the advent of the post-apartheid South Africa been a subject of contestation among scholars, is that of, how can the higher education system that was founded on colonial and apartheid white supremacy and hegemony be transformed into a transformative tool that addresses inequalities characterising South African society in the democratic era' This article seeks to provide a de-colonial perspective of how the higher education system of the post-apartheid South Africa can be transformed to address different developmental needs of a heterogeneous population. The purpose is not to dictate answers, but to create avenues of (re)thinking the knowledge production in the South African higher education sector in the quest for an equal and inclusive society. The article's key argument is that a higher education system such as that in South Africa which was founded on colonial and apartheid ideologies, interests and agendas needs a de-colonial transformation in order to respond to the developmental needs, challenges and aspirations of its heterogeneous population. After an engagement with the myths and assumptions of a decolonised world that conceals coloniality of knowledge, this article, delves into the South African higher education system and the quest for equality that confronts the country. The need to 'unthink' and 'unlearn' present forms of imagining higher education in South Africa is emphasised.

  • Volume 39 Issue 1 - Africa's past invented to serve development's
           uncertain future
    • Abstract: MacWilliam, Scott
      This essay examines the proposition that development, which has stalled since Independence in many African countries, can be restarted by the restoration of colonial governance. This form of rule, in place from the end of the 19th until the middle of the last century, was supposedly responsible for major improvements in a range of living conditions for colonial populations. The end of colonial governance, it is alleged, led to corruption and impoverishment for many people. Here it is argued that, as offensive as many may find the claim that colonial rule was beneficial for subject peoples, the purpose of the proposition should receive attention. The call for the return of colonial governance is placed within a wider, more influential series of proposals for how to bring development at a moment of uncertainty through a range of governance reforms. These proposals struggle with the politics of capitalist development, particularly the fraught relationship between development and democracy. The virtue of the call for the return of colonial governance is that it at least makes clear the increasingly prevalent assertion that democracy should be a lower priority than development.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - China's evolving role and approach to international
           peacekeeping: The cases of Mali and South Sudan
    • Abstract: Neethling, Theo
      China's expanded involvement in post-Cold War United Nations (UN) peacekeeping operations coincided with Beijing's efforts in the early 2000s to expand its economic and diplomatic influence globally through trade and diplomatic links. Towards the mid-2000s, China was involved in all seven UN peacekeeping operations on the African continent. At the same time, Beijing's views on peacekeeping have consistently been premised on state sovereignty and the associated principle of non-intervention and noninterference in the affairs of other states. However, as China's strategic and material interests have become more integrated with the African continent, Beijing has been compelled more and more to consider its national (economic) interests and to protect those interests. Consequently, China's growing involvement in peacekeeping has evolved and become increasingly more difficult to reconcile with the country's historical commitment to noninterventionism, as specifically evident in recent Chinese peacekeeping involvement in Mali and South Sudan. Furthermore, the sending of Chinese combat forces to Mali and South Sudan suggests that China has become more comfortable with UN combat operations under certain situations.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - China's baby steps in Africa: A Historical reckoning
           of Chinese relations with Mozambique and Sudan until 2011
    • Abstract: Robinson, David; Hale, Benjamin
      China's presence in Africa has grown rapidly over the past two decades, as Africa's oil and minerals have become increasingly important for China's resource-hungry economy. China's network of relations with developing states began its expansion during the 1990s, and by the early Twenty First Century had become an increasing cause for concern amongst Western commentators. Critics of Chinese influence in Africa argue that China's economic relations are self-serving, and that their actions might detrimentally affect progress for democratisation, human rights, and sustainable development in Africa. Others argue that, in fact, Chinese policies aim to create long-term stability and development in African nations, on a mutually beneficial basis. This article will assess Chinese policies as implemented in the period up to 2011, in the two African nations of Sudan and Mozambique. Criticisms of Chinese relations with Africa will be considered, which commonly include that those relationships will hurt African economies, encourage corruption and authoritarianism, and threaten the security of African civilians. This article concludes that there is some truth to each of these criticisms, but that the reality is more complex, varies substantially from case to case, and does not preclude positive outcomes from these growing relations.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - 'Remembering' absent and recent pasts through
           photographs: Young Eritrean women in New Zealand
    • Abstract: Humpage, Louise; Marlowe, Jay
      This article presents a Photovoice project that explores the narratives of five young women of Eritrean heritage living in New Zealand. The photographs taken by the women suggest that their current individual and collective identities are mediated by two different kinds of 'memories': 'post-memories' of an absent past in their ancestral country that they were too young to experience, which build identity and belonging at the collective level, and 'autobiographical memories' of recent, lived experiences which remind participants of their individual achievements since resettlement and/or help them articulate a future in New Zealand.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - African mothers' experiences of raising 'Afro-Kiwi
           kids' in Aotearoa / New Zealand
    • Abstract: Connor, Helene; Ayallo, Irene; Elliott, Susan
      This article presents findings from qualitative research data gathered from a group of ten refugee-background and immigrant African mothers living in Auckland, Aotearoa/New Zealand. The research study-From Mama Africa to Papatuanuku: The experiences of a group of African Mothers living in Auckland-focused on the mothers' narratives and their perceptions of their experiences of mothering within the cultural and social contexts of Aotearoa/New Zealand, and how they set about raising their 'Afro-Kiwi kids' (a term used by several of the women to describe their children's dual identity) in their adopted country. Findings are specific to the cohort's experiences and the Auckland community in which they have made new homes for themselves and their families. The role and place of African women migrants in resettlement and research into their mothering is limited, and this research was cognisant of addressing this gap in the literature. The study acknowledged the strong role women have within their families as guardians of culture and language, and an underlying rationale was to increase understanding of the ways mothers contribute to new migrant and refugee-background communities and to uncover some of the challenges they face. Identifying central themes from the narratives was a significant aspect of this research. Identifying and reporting on the themes provided an inherently flexible approach and enabled the researchers to work collaboratively with the women to make sense of and interpret the data. Themes identified included: integration, language, connections with Maori culture, cultural reproduction and mothering practices.
