In 1937, E. Boelaert launched a series of pamphlets under the title ∆quatoria. G. Hulstaert expanded the idea and the full-fledged africanist journal ∆quatoria was born. After a few years, it found a stable rhythm and appeared four times per year. It functioned as a major and indispensable landmark for all the emerging africanist departments around the world. In 1962, the journal ceased publication for practical reasons.
The journal ∆quatoria was relaunched by the founders of the Centre ∆quatoria in 1980, under
the new name Annales ∆quatoria, which in its turn was discontinued in 2009 (volume 30).
Annales ∆quatoria appeared once a year (around 600 pages per issue), welcomed articles in
French and English (other languages were also accepted), and encouraged research on the
Central African languages, literatures, cultures, and history in general, and on the Mongo
people in particular.
Apart from 'Annales ∆quatoria', the Centre ∆quatoria also published a parallel series of monographs, called 'Etudes ∆quatoria'. Over 10 titles appeared, covering a variety of africanist topics. Backup copies are still available for most issues and can also be ordered at the ∆quatoria address.
