Brief History: Journal of Oromo Studies (JOS) 

With the mission of producing thorough and evidence-based research, OSA established the Journal of Oromo Studies (JOS) in 1992, which became an educational platform responsible for the dissemination and production of Oromo Studies.

The first #JOS journal was published in 1993.

We are incredibly honoured to announce a keynote speaker of the 2019 OSA Annual Conference: Bonnie K. Holcomb/Qabbanee.

Qabbanee, an anthropologist of the Oromo and neighbouring peoples in the Horn of Africa, is a pioneer of Oromo studies and a founder of OSA. She is also a committed life-long advocate of human rights and justice for the Oromo and other peoples. Her keynote address will be on “Reimagining Power: The Challenge of Centering the Dominated Majority in Ethiopia.”

From over 40 years of working with Oromo and their neighbours, Qabbanee brings a perspective on Ethiopia not from the viewpoint of the state, but from the grassroots. She argues that the greatest prospects for societal transformation and lasting change lie in accessing the long-hidden energies, cultural legacies, wealth and wisdom of the vast majority of the population, which were previously disregarded and disempowered in the course of state-building and consolidation.

Professor Asmarom has spent over the last half-century studying and unravelling the rich, complex and obscure nature of the Gadaa System. He is the author of Gadaa (1973) and Oromo Democracy (2000). We are excited to share that Professor Asmarom has recently published the second edition of Gadaa (2019), which will be available at the 2019 OSA Conference.
