Presidential Address by Dr. Mrs. Ada Uzoamaka AzodoAt the 2018 16th Annual Conference and Meeting of the Igbo Studies Association (USA), Dominican University River Forest, Illinois, USA

    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.
