Publishes interviews focused on the relationship of postcolonial studies to the study of writing, theory, and criticism.

The interviews focus on a problem(s) of considerable urgency to postcolonial writing and/or criticism, evince a systematic examination of the problem(s), and maintain the interest of Jouvert's audience through a forceful, coherent presentation.
