(A 50th Anniversary Conference)

5 September 2008, University of Nottingham, UK

Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart is the biggest selling African novel,

was the epochal event in African literature, leading to a transformation in
the literary landscape. On the fiftieth anniversary of its publication, it
is appropriate to appraise the impact and heritage of the book, as well as
the direction of African Literature in the next half-century.

Many of us cannot attend high-end conferences in the West for primarily two
reasons: economics and the unavailability of leaves from our institutes. It
is high time that we start rethinking the way we do literature and

study of theodicy/theology/Evil/sanctity. We will especially focus on
targeted online paper readings through SKYPE, Yahoo or some other suitable
with-camera free chat service. Folks in other disciplines like IT etc. are
already well into such conferences.
There are of course some logistical problems involved:
