Bibliography: Year 2003, Compiled by Thomas P. Ofcansky
“IJES will, for the first time, provide Ethiopian scholars with an Ethiopian venue for refl ecting seriously on Ethiopian issues from a scholarly perspective. As a number of philosophers have pointed out, one of the deepest obstacles to African (including Ethiopia) progress towards democracy and economic prosperity was the peculiar situation of Africans being reduced to an object of knowledge by contemporary social science and, consequently, the absence of Africans, including Ethiopians, as self-examining, self evaluating, self-defi ning, and self propelling subjects of history. As a result, we have been totally dependent on external (European and American) defi nitions, interpretations, explanations, evaluations of who we are and what our problems and their solutions are. IJES is an important step in breaking away from this objectifi cation of Ethiopia. It will provide a scholarly medium for Ethiopians to reclaim their subjectivity.”- Maimire Mennasemay, Professor at Dawson College
Africa’s Cultural Ambassador, African knowledge broker, and Continental Bridge Builder are just few of the names Elias Wondimu was called in his life in the United States. After careful examination of the American media landscape and book market, an exiled journalist from Ethiopia, Wondimu discovered that stories and subjects from Africa or its residents in the diaspora are tagged negatively, ignoring the positive, subtleties and nuances that define them. As a solution, he started a media company—TSEHAI Publishers, which gives socially responsible publications and fill the void that exists in the market place. Wondimu often says that he doesn’t have a five years plan but of fifty, that aims to empower the next generation; so that they become the change that we want to see in the world.
