A research, documentation and information centre

Nordiska Afrikainstitutet (The Nordic Africa Institute) in Uppsala, founded

in 1962 and jointly financed by the Nordic countries, is a research, docu-
mentation and information centre on modern Africa for the Nordic coun-
tries. The Institute promotes both research and studies on Africa in the
Nordic countries and co-operation between mainly African and Nordic
researchers. It also disseminates information on current African issues,
through publications, seminars, conferences and various policy related
activities. Lately these activities have focused on the New Partnership for
Africa’s Development (NEPAD), the African Union, African regional co-
operation and monitor democratic development. The Instituteís studies
also reflect upon the recent past particularly with regard to the liberation
struggles in Southern Africa, and the very volatile situation in Central and
West Africa.
A list of the Institute’s ongoing research activities can be found on the
back cover of this catalogue. More information about the different activi-
ties, grants, library services and publications is available on the Institute’s

Re-thinking 2nd reprint 2006

Sexualities in Africa
This volume sets out to critically investigate
existing lines of thought about sexuality in
Africa, while also creating space for alternative
approaches. Issues of colonial and contemporary
discourses on ‘African sexuality’ and on ‘female
genital mutilation’ are discussed, as are issues
of female agency and of feminist engagement

with HIV/AIDS. The volume contributes to current
efforts to re-think sexualities in the light of
feminist, queer and postcolonial theory.

A must addition to social science collections

in general and African studies in particular,
this volume will be of great importance to
professionals, graduate students, and advanced
undergraduates. 2004, 215 pp, 91-7106-566-0

Intergenerational obligations, changing societies, family patterns …

Societies and families are changing all over
the world. Less of what the older genera-
tions transmit of their experiences can be
replicated by the younger generations in their
own lives. What we are witnessing is a type of
cultural delinking from past generations.
This longitudial study, made by the Repro-
ductive Health Study Group linked to the
University of Dar es Salaam focuses on the
teenage girl and the erosion of the customs
that had regulated marriage, parenthood and
intergenerational obligations. It also discusses
the generation gap and the ways in which
this gap has widened over the past century.
