New Issue on African and African Diasporan Writers (JENdA Journal)

The peer-reviewed JENdA: A Journal of Culture and African Women Studies has just published Issue 30 on African and African Diasporan Writers. This issue on African Literature in JENdA is an exploration that features conversations with writers discussing their work and inspiration. This issue is for anyone. For those teaching literature, the issue is a great asset, and it comes with the added benefit that these cross and trans-continental dialogues ask us to consider that local and global can and does occupy the same space.

Dr. Nwachukwu Frank Ukadike, Esteemed Scholar of African Film, has passed away

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I am writing to inform the AfrLitCine community, that Dr. N. Frank Ukadike has died. He passed away Aug 4, 2018, while conducting research and visiting friends and family in Agbor, Nigeria. 

Last week, we honored his passing with a beautiful memorial service here at Tulane University, where Frank Ukadike was a respected and loved professor of Africana Studies and Communications for twenty years. We send our deepest sympathies to his family, friends, colleagues, and former students.
