Circle Publications Desk
Coming soon Hear Our Cry: African Women, HIV/AIDS and Faith Communities,
Edited by Isabel Apawo Phiri, Beverley Haddad and Madipoane Masenya, Pietermaritzburg:
Five other academic books are in the process of being prepared for publication
in 2003. The books are based on papers, which were presented at the Circle's
Pan African conference in Addis Ababa in August 2002. The above title has been
sent to the publishers already and it is expected that the other books will
be ready for publication soon. Watch this space for further information in the
next edition of the newsletter.
The Circle will continue to publish AMKA (Swahili word for Arise). Three AMKAs
will be published in 2003 from the Addis Ababa conference papers, which were
not included in the academic books. One of the AMKAs will be in Portuguese edited
by Felicidade Cherinde and Victoria Pereira.
The Circle will continue to produce a Newsletter, which will be circulated in
April and October each year. The newsletter will be translated into French and
Portuguese. It will be circulated to all registered members of the Circle and
partners of the Circle. Helene Yinda will be the editor of the Circle Newsletter.
Please send your contributions to Helene or to Isabel as soon as possible.
An updated Circle directory will be circulated once each year in July. The constant
updating of the directory is important because it offers the opportunity to
add new members and to keep up with new addresses for the members. The Circle
data form is on the Circle Website. The first updated directory will be circulated
in July 2003. If you have changed your address please let us know as soon as
The Circle Editor's workshop in Legon, Accra, Ghana, 1-5 Dec 2002.
Standing: Philomena Mwaura, Madipoane Masenya, Hazel Ayanga, Dorcas
Akintunde & Helene Yinda
Sitting: Anne Kubai, Isabel Phiri, Felicidade Cherinda, Bernedette
Mbuy Beya & Mercy Oduyoye.
Circle Profile Publication
Tell us something about yourselves. The Circle would like to publish a profile
of Circle members, which will include a photo and a five line CV about each
Circle member. This publication is necessary for conference, consultations,
workshop, seminar organisers or possible employers. This will help to expose
more Circle members to the world of conferences and it is hoped that the few
prominent ones will not be overburdened with invitations as speakers at conferences,
consultations, workshops and seminars. First publication will come out in 2004.
Please send to the coordinator your recent coloured photograph and a brief CV
as soon as possible.
The Circle is planning to publish an annotated Bibliography of the publications
of Circle members. This publication will be very useful for theological institutions
that want to use Circle publications in their teaching. First publication will
come out in 2004. Please send to the coordinator a short paragraph of each of
all your publications, describing what it is about and which discipline can
use your article.
Essays in Honour of Mercy Oduyoye
The Circle has continued with the vision of publishing a book in honour of Mercy
Oduyoye as the founder of the Circle. Watch this space for a call for papers
for Mercy's book in the October 2003 Circle newsletter. The theme of the book
will be: 'Women and Health in Africa'. This book will be published in 2004.
In March 2003 the hosting and updating of the Circle website was transferred
from Geneva, Switzerland to Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. The Circle website
address is http://www.thecirclecawt.org.
The new host is The Blue Box Corporate Solutions based in Pietermaritzburg.
The process of changing the host and updating it has taken much longer than
anticipated. Please accept our apologies!
Please send Isabel the cover of your book/s
(either by e-mail or by post) so that it
can be placed on the on the Circle website.
