I’m pleased to announce that I had the opportunity to serve as the guest editor for JPAS’ special edition (Volume 8 • Number 5 • September 2015) on Wole Soyinka entitled “Rethinking Wole Soyinka: 81 Years of Protracted Engagemented.” We are one of the few academic journals that is honoring Soyinka on his 81st years of life. It was a pleasure to work with a host of prominent Soyinka Scholars–both in continental Africa and African Diaspora–and Dr. Itibari M. Zulu, the chief editor of the Journal, has been very supportive of this project. Now, go read these fine essays online.”
Here are the essays I contributed to this special issue: “Rethinking Wole Soyinka:81 Years of Protracted Engagement:”
