    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.

    Professor Ernest Nneji Emenyonu, arguably the most prominent Igbo scholar today and a notable Chinua Achebe, Cyprian Ekwensi, and Flora Nwapa scholar, partly due to his rich and voluminous critical works on these luminary Igbo sons and daughters, his world-renown in creatively (re)telling the Igbo story, and partly due to his reputation as a gynandrist, is a life member of the Flora Nwapa Society, a member of the Women’s Caucus of the African Literature Association (USA),

    THE 15TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF THE IGBO STUDIES ASSOCIATION

    Theme: NtoAla Igbo: Retelling Our Story, Rekindling Our Values

    Greatwood Hotels, Plot 12, G Port Harcourt-Owerri Road, Fed. Secretariat Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria

    June 8-10, 2017

    The Igbo Studies Association (ISA) specially invites scholars, professionals, organizations, and students working on all aspects of studies on the Igbo at home and its diaspora to attend its 15th annual international conference to be held on June 8-10, 2017 at Greatwood Hotels, Owerri, Nigeria. To deliberate on the conference’s timely theme, NtoAla Igbo: Retelling Our Story, Rekindling Our Values, we welcome presenters in the...

    As we gather for yet another annual meeting of our dear association and my second annual report as your president, I would want to begin by saying that I have stood on the shoulders of our founding fathers and mother not to make history, which I and many others helped shape over the last 15 years, but to say that collectively we are “moving higher, looking farther, and leading the way forward”

    As many of you are aware, we have continued to grow in numbers over the last two years. I am particularly proud of our outreach in Nigeria. My appointment as professor at the University of Nigeria Nsukka in the last one year and half was an opportunity to reach out to the scholarly community especially at Nsukka, Imo State University, Alvan Ikoku Federal College of Education among others. We can continue to build on these connections to strengthen our numbers and also to bring younger scholars into the fold. Today, our active membership is about 300.
