About the Journal

The Zena-Lissan Journal was started in 1996 by the then Ethiopian Languages Research Centre (ELRC), now the Academy of Ethiopian Languages and Cultures (hereafter AELC), focused especially on the cultures (folklores) and languages of different societies within Ethiopia. Since then, the journal has continued to be published biannually in Amharic and English languages aimed to encourage research and promote dialogue among scholars of interdisciplinary fields.
