The conference will cover a wide array of subjects on Nigeria during the twentieth century. This is the first scholarly conference to review the entire history and society of Nigeria during the twentieth century. It will lay the foundation for a follow-up conference on Nigeria in the 21st century. Scholars from all disciplines are invited.
Papers and panels will be divided by disciplines (e.g., History, Literature) as well as by subjects (e.g., "The Development of Nigerian Literature"). As much as possible, papers will be assigned to particular panels based on similarities in theme or location. After the conference, prominent scholars will be asked to introduce and edit the leading papers in different volumes that will reflect the range of themes and disciplines.
This is a call for proposals including papers, panels, and roundtables. A theme can be discussed from a variety of perspectives in the humanities, social sciences, technology, and sciences.
