50 years of Chinua Achebe’s Arrow of God: A panel/ symposium of the Biennial Conference of the African Studies Association UK 20

full name / name of organization:

T.Ochiagha@sussex.ac.uk

Chinua Achebe’s third novel, Arrow of God (1964)—of all his novels, the one he admitted he was most likely to be caught sitting down to read again—has been hailed by many as his most accomplished work. However, despite its pre-eminence in Achebe’s canon, it has been generally overshadowed by the searing power of the canonicity, foundational status, and enduring influence of Things Fall Apart. To mark the novel’s fiftieth anniversary, this panel seeks to reexamine the complexity and significance of Arrow of God. The convenor invites papers on any topic related to the novel.
