IFLA Africa: Call for AJLA contributions ‘Indigenous Knowledge Landscapes’
The theme for the fourth issue, AJLA: 04, is ‘Indigenous Knowledge Landscapes’.
The issue is planned for October 2022 and authors are invited to submit abstracts by 12 August 2022 and full articles by 15th September 2022. AJLA is published as an e-journal and is available for free at www.ajlajournal.org
Indigenous peoples’ profound relationship with the landscape is prominent in many cultures across the African continent. Local communities have built their common identity from the landscape by embracing many of the concepts found in indigenous knowledge. This knowledge is a significant resource and can contribute to the increased efficiency, effectiveness, and resilience in environmental planning and management and enable culturally expressive design solutions. AJLA invites the submission of articles relating to this theme, particularly landscape architecture’s role in creating ‘indigenous knowledge landscapes’.
Registered landscape architects, landscape practices and African institutions are invited to be listed in the Journal’s Directory. Entries in the Directory are now available for free. Go to www.ajlajournal.org/directory to enter your details and logo.
