ABOUT THE IGBO STUDIES ASSOCIATION

The Igbo Studies Association (ISA) was founded on November 8, 1999 at the African Studies Association (ASA) Confer­ence in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to promote and encourage research and scholarship on Igbo history, culture, social movements, linguistic, literary and artistic expressions, science and technology; to forge intellectual links and network with scholars, policy makers, and activists inside and outside NIGERIA; to participate actively and collaboratively in continental and global debates with interested organizations in Nigeria, the U.S.A. and other countries on issues specifically relevant and correlated to Igbo studies; and to work proactively for the promotion of Igbo language with interested organizations and/ or institutions in diverse regions of the world.
