Nkiru Nzegwu to give Distinguished Africanist lecture

2:27 p.m., March 8, 2004--Nkiru Nzegwu, associate professor and chair of the Department of Africana Studies at the State University of New York at Binghamton, will deliver the University of Delaware’s second annual Distinguished Africanist lecture at 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, March 16, in 103 Gore Hall.

In her lecture, “Breaking Taboos: Gender Politics in the Modern and Contemporary Art of Nigeria—Nkechi Nwosu-Igbo,” Nzegwu will refer to art by Nwosu-Igbo, a female artist from Nigeria, while discussing African art, the erosion of women’s roles in art today when compared with traditional African society and the politics of the contemporary art world.

“The latter tends not only to favor male artists but perhaps even to exclude women artists from exhibition space, scholarly writing and internationalized art criticism,” Ikem Isokoye, assistant professor of art history at UD, said.

The free public lecture will be followed by a reception on the first floor in the Gore Hall rotunda.
