Basic Information

Íkala, journal of language and culture is a four-monthly serial academic publication since 2009. It was set up in 1996 as a means of expression for the publishing company of the School of Languages of the Universidad de Antioquia (Colombia).  Its aim is to communicate the trends, experiences and results of the theorizing and application of knowledge in both native and foreign languages and cultures.  Therefore, Íkala seeks to establish itself as a broadcasting medium, making public the intellectual works produced by members of the School of Languages and by the national and international community of knowledge.
