Dear All, join me in congratulating ‎a dear colleague and friend in the Department of English, a Poet, literary critic, theorist and the immediate past Dean of Arts, University of Ibadan, Nigeria, for emerging as one of the four recipients of 2017 edition of the Alumni Award. 

This is a well deserved laurel in recognition of your profound scholarly contribution. Keep up the good work, brother.


Aderemi Raji-Oyelade, a professor in the Department of English, University of Ibadan, has been announced as a winner of the Humboldt Alumni Award 2017 for Innovative Networking Initiatives.
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation grants up to four Humboldt Alumni Awards per year to promote innovative networking initiatives of alumni of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation's fellowship and award programmes. It is designed to support initiatives not covered by the Foundation's existing sponsorship and alumni programmes, and to promote academic and cultural relations between Germany and the Humboldt Alumni's own countries and strengthen their collaboration in the respective regions.

In a statement by Dr. Enno Aufderheide, the General Secretary of the Foundation, "This award shall give you the opportunity to implement your proposed networking initiative as well as contribute to support sustainable academic and cultural relations between Germany and your home country, and to strengthen the regional alumni network. I would like to offer my congratulations on this exceptional achievement."

Raji-Oyelade's award-winning project is entitled "Postproverbial Africa: Building a Corpora of Wits in Texts, Media and Performance", a trans-national initiative which brings African scholars in the humanities together with the ultimate aim of contributing to the body of modern and radical proverbs which are created mainly in urban communities almost all over the African continent.
The Humboldt Alumni Award ceremony will take place in June 2017 during the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation's Annual Meeting in Berlin. Funding for the award is being provided by the German Foreign Office.
