Academic Visit: Prof. Dr. Sule Egya


April 6
02:00 PM - 11:00 PM

On April 6, PhD students and advanced scholars had the rare opportunity to listen to one of the most distinguished African scholars of ecocriticism, Sule Emmanuel Egya from Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University in Lapai, Nigeria. Professor Egya, who is also co-advisor in the IDK, came to the Environmental Science Center at Augsburg University to discuss how Nigeria’s “literature of militancy” contributes to the larger environmental and anti-(neo)colonial resistance movement in Nigeria, a country severely threatened by the politics of urbanization, the subjugation of natural beings, extractive capitalism, and other forms of cruelties visited on other-than-human life-forms.
