    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.

    The 16th Igbo Studies Association Annual International Conference
    Theme: “Igbo Ga-adi: Projecting Igbo Values and Customs”
    Dominican University, River Forest, Chicago, Illinois, USA
    May 10-12, 2018

    The Igbo Studies Association (ISA) specially invites scholars, students, organizations and professionals in Nigeria and in the diaspora whose research interests cover any of the areas of Igbo Studies to its 16th annual international conference, which will take place at the Dominican University, River Forest, Illinois, USA, on May 10-12, 2018.

    Released: July 25, 2017

    The Igbo Studies Association held its 15th Annual International Conference and meeting in Owerri, Nigeria, on June 8-10, 2017. The three-day conference at the Greatwood Hotel, Owerri, welcomed scholars and professionals from all parts of Nigeria, Europe, United States of America and Canada.

    Part of the funding for the ISA conference and meeting in Owerri came from the African Studies Association’s 2017 small grant awards opportunity for Coordinate and Affiliate Organizations, supported by ASA’s 50th Anniversary Fund for activities ranging from conferences in Africa to travel expenses by scholars.
