USA Africa Dialogue Series - Fwd: Professor Francis Abiola Irele, NNOM, FNAL (1936-2017): R.I.P

What a loss to the Humanities! The mayor of African literary criticixm. When Professor Toyin Falola asked those of us who converged at the legendary Lecture Room 32, Faculty of Arts, University of Ibadan on 30th June, 2017, for a Seminar on Decoloniality, to pray for the health of Abiola Irele, some of us hoped against hope. Irele, I recall, in the 1980s, opened us up to the universality of the literary enterprise. Surely, Professor Irele lives on in the minds of all of us who are dedicated to the intellectual engagement, advancement and enjoyment of the arts and the social sciences.
