    Dear ISA Members,

    Greetings! Ndewo nu o!

    The ISA Summit at the Greatwood Hotels, Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria, has come and gone, but will probably never leave our memory as one of the most fruitful and enjoyable conferences of the Igbo Studies Association yet. It is my belief that everyone has returned safely to home base, having not heard anything to the contrary. We are grateful to Chukwu for journey mercy to Owerri and back.
