The theme of this volume comes out of a research project entitled “Gender, Language and Identity in (Post) Colonial Algeria”, which was crowned by two successful national conferences in 2019 and 2021. The idea to extend the scope of research from Algeria to African contexts is realised in the sixth volume of this journal. African countries share a common history of colonisation, struggle and war of independence. Likewise, all of them witnessed an alteration in their languages during colonisation and after. Articles related to gender, language situation and identity in African countries were called for in which authors highlighted aspects of race, religion, culture, art, literature and many other topics in the (post) colonial African contexts.
