PROJECTS

(1) The centre within its one year of existence hosted an international conference captioned “Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe Memorial Lecture”. The conference recorded a huge success and attracted numerous academics from both within and outside Nigeria.

(2) The centre has presently organized the teaching of spoken/conversational Igbo to those who do not speak but are enthusiastic to learn to speak the language and know the Igbo culture.

(3) The centre is planning for a second international conference in the second half of 2016. Very soon the conference will be announced.

(4) There is a plan to engage in what the centre calls “Salvage Igbo Ethnography” project; which will take our researches to all nooks and corners of Igbo land. For this, we are soliciting funds for the purchase of a serviceable bus from public spirited Igbo sons/daughters to help the centre realize this goal.

(5) The centre in doing the best it can to establish links with outside bodies such as the Igbo Studies Association USA and African Studies Association also in USA.

Other activities of the centre will be made known as time goes on since it is relatively a new establishment.
