USA Africa Dialogue Series - New Book: Igbo in the Atlantic World: African Origins and Diasporic Destinations

Falola and Njoku, Igbo in the Atlantic World: African Origins and Diasporic Destinations. Indiana University Press, 2016.

The Igbo are one of the most populous ethnic groups in Nigeria and are perhaps best known and celebrated in the work of Chinua Achebe. In this landmark collection on Igbo society and arts, Toyin Falola and Raphael Chijioke Njoku have compiled a detailed and innovative examination of the Igbo experience in Africa and in the diaspora. Focusing on institutions and cultural practices, the volume covers the enslavement, middle passage, and American experience of the Igbo as well as their return to Africa and aspects of Igbo language, society, and cultural arts. By employing a variety of disciplinary perspectives, this volume presents a comprehensive view of how the Igbo were integrated into the Atlantic world through the slave trade and slavery, the transformations of Igbo identities and culture, and the strategies for resistance employed by the Igbo in the New World. Moving beyond descriptions of generic African experiences, this collection includes 21 essays by prominent scholars throughout the world.

USA Africa Dialogue Series - Re: [NIgerianWorldForum] Why UI is Nigeria’s only university in top 1,000 globally – VC

I am having difficultly seeing why there should be jubilation over such a low place in university rankings, particularly for such a formerly illustrious institution  as the University of Ibadan.

'I join VC Idowu Olayinka in this request. The Federal government should select three universities (UI, UNN, ABU) for special treatment as centers of excellence and fund them fully (like $1.5 billion) annually and the universities should solicit funding from the Dangotes of Nigeria for additional $1 billion. With a modest investment of $2 billion Nigeria annual budget Nigeria would reap immense benefits in economics, sciences improvement, and prestige. These universities in turn would reduce their admission to between 800-1,000 each,a year; made up of top students from Nigeria (70%) from Across Africa (15%) and around the world (15%). Education is too important to be ignored'.

Subject: [NIgerianWorldForum] Why UI is Nigeria's only university in top 1,000 globally – VC



 

The Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, UI, Idowu Olayinka, has asked the Federal Government to allocate special funds to the university to improve research and infrastructure.
Mr. Olayinka made the request in the university's bulletin signed by the Registrar, Olufemi Olukoya, and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria.
He said that the special funding will enable the institution to do more to compete favourably with the world's best universities.
He noted that the latest ranking of universities by Times Higher Education (THE) placed UI among the top 1,000 universities in the world.
UI was ranked 801 in the rankings.
Olayinka described the ranking as a welcome development, noting that it showed that UI was the only Nigerian university that made it among the top 1,000.
He said that the university was blessed with dedicated world class scholars, and urged that Nigeria must engaged them effectively to solve its problems.
"In spite of the underfunding by the Federal Government, the University of Ibadan has finally been ranked among the 1,000 best universities in the world," he said.
According to him, the latest ranking was based on teaching, research, and citations of scholarly publications, industry income and international outlook.
"The truth of the matter is that the Times Higher Education is one of the elite global ranking bodies.
"It is a thing of joy that we have a respectable position in comparison to peer universities in Africa.
"This is a message to the Federal Government of Nigeria that we need funding to improve our research and infrastructure to enhance productivity.
"We congratulate all faculties, staff and students who have made this feat possible.
"The Federal Government should learn to use research output from the University of Ibadan to solve problems facing the country.
"We cannot have world class scholars in Nigeria and rely on those who have never conducted researches on our problems to come and solve our problems," he said.
