    Title of Keynote: Retrospectives and Projections: lgbo Cosmogony and Sustaining Epistemologies for the Future”

    Professor Chimalum Nwankwo, Professor of African Literature, African-American Literature, American literature and World Literature studied at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, and Texas A & M University, USA. His teaching stable includes Post-Colonial Literature, African and African American Literature, World Literature, Creative Writing, and Dramatic Literature. Professor Nwankwo was right there in Philadelphia in 2009, when the decision was made by Igbo professors gathered at the African Literature Association conference to begin an Igbo Studies Association. In his teaching, Nwankwọ’s recurrent contention is that no literature operates in a political vacuum, adding that everything is in a flux, because without fail no cultural or ideological fixation ever endures.

    Christmas Eve Message to ISA, December 24, 2017

    Dear ISA Members,

    You certainly have heard me say again and again what a great honor and privilege it is for me to lead our great association, the Igbo Studies Association of America. At a time like this, it is exhilarating for me to give this 2017 Christmas message to you.

    Christmastide recalls the fundamental message that Christ died for us, hence our human interconnections no matter our location on the globe, the dignity of human life, the need for human love, and the hope that a Supreme Being much greater than us can always take over when we are no longer able to continue on the road of life alone.
