ASU’s African Heros Night Presents: Professor Francis B. Nyamnjoh!

Thursday 21 March 2013

This year we are happy to welcome Professor Francis B. Nyamnjoh: Chair of the Department of Social Anthropology at the University of Cape Town, South Africa.

We will be having food, a presentation and entertainment in his honor! Come share an entertaining and historic occasion with us!

Dr. Nyamnjoh is a highly sought-after and revered scholar-professor. He has served several national, Pan-African, and international research and development institutions in or working in Africa. He is an Africanist to the core and has turn down several invitations to take-up permanent teaching position in Europe and America, and has selflessly elected to visit Universities in the West just to present talks that advance the intellectual course of Africa, or as external examiner to M.A. and PhD theses and dissertations on Africa. That is to say, although Prof. Nyamnjoh is literally married to African scholarship, he is available to the global intellectual community so long as that is to advance the African epistemology. Among the awards that acknowledge Prof. Nyamnjoh’s service to the intellectual community and studentship in Africa include his beautification as the “Senior Arts Researcher of the Year for 2003” at the University of Botswana; he was in 2010 rated a “B2” professor and researcher by the South African National Research Foundation (researchers who enjoy considerable international recognition by their peers for the high quality and impact of their recent research output) valid from 1st January 2011 to 31st December 2016; and was equally inducted as a Fellow of the Cameroon Academy of Science in August 2011. He was been a beneficiary to numerous highly competitive fellowships in the world and is member of scholarly professional associations in Africa: IAI, IFC, AGGSS, ACCE, CIKO, CODESRIA, HSRC, PAAA, SARCHI, etc and serves in the editorial board of several Pan-African and Africanist peer reviewed journals: Critical Arts, Ecquid Novi, International Journal of Comic Art, Africa Affairs, African Studies, Media Development, American Ethnologist, African Diaspora: Journal of Transnational Africa in a Global World, African Studies Review, Journal of Modern African Studies, Journal of African Media Studies, Zed Books, etc.
