From Center to Periphery and from Periphery to Center: An Inter-Culture exchange

During most of the 20th century, academia knowledge was circulated in the world on a path parallel with Western countries’ political and economic dominance. Western experts were sent out into the world by their native country or by international institutions to share or impose their findings on other countries in the areas of literature, linguistics and the teaching of foreign languages. This is what we might call a diffusion of knowledge from center to periphery. There were some exceptions to this Western dominance but not many.

Digital Permanent Residents
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2018

Nigerian print and electronic media were beset by a revenue crisis in the late 1980s and early 1990s. In the context of structural adjustment of the country’s economy, the so-called Fourth Estate became a victim of its own success when its century-long visionary pursuit of democracy and social justice could no longer be sustained by old expectations based on circulation and advertisement. That apparent economic crisis was exacerbated by political problems arising from draconian military practices of rule, censorship, direct intimidation, and the corruption or cooptation of media ethics.
