The Igbo Studies Association (ISA) extends a special invitation to scholars and professionals working on all aspects of studies on the Igbo of southern Nigeria for its next annual conference to be held from April 12 - 14, 2012, at Howard University, USA. In light of profound changes in recent decades and the serious challenges facing the Igbo & Igbo diasporic communities at the intersections of globalization, population movements, gender, science, technology, and socio-economic development, the 10th Annual Meeting will examine the general theme – Uwa Ndi Igbo – (the Igbo World) and its variations. The organizers welcome both local and international specialists/intellectuals at all stages in their careers to facilitate discussion and dialogue across disciplines and between scholars and professionals.
